Amsterdam Light Festival 2017 / 2018

Amsterdam Light Festival puts our capital city in the spotlights during the dark winter months. In December and January, the city sparkles with many light art installations. National and international artists have created unique works of art, most of which were made specifically for Amsterdam Light Festival. The canals of Amsterdam form the enchanting background for the festival.

Water Colors canal cruises

Amsterdam Light Festival is best seen from the water. Many artworks and light art installations are located next to the Water Colors route, a boat route through the Amsterdam canals. The artworks' reflections cause a magical interplay between light and water. Want to experience the light art from up close? Join us on one of our Water Colors canal cruises.
