Overview

In the dark winter months, Amsterdam is traditionally transformed into a beautiful open light museum during the Amsterdam Light Festival. Modern artists from all over the world make spectacular light artworks that can be found all over the city center of Amsterdam. The best way to enjoy these artworks is during an Amsterdam Light Festival canal cruise. From the Amsterdam canals, you have a first-class view of the light art while you can relax and look around. The Amsterdam Light Festival route is designed in such a way that you can see all the artworks in the canals and on the quay.

Theme Amsterdam Light Festival

Every year the Light Festival in Amsterdam has a different theme. The artworks are all based on this. With this theme, the organization behind the festival wants to inspire visitors to find answers to questions related to the medium of light. What kinds of messages does the medium light transmit nowadays? In an era of fake news and alternative facts, can light maintain its objectivity? How does light communicate in a way that no other medium can?

Amsterdam Light Festival Tickets

Enjoy the Amsterdam Light Festival from a modern and comfortable boat from our canal cruises partner. Along the way, the audio guide (Dutch & English) tells you more about the beautiful light installations you pass by. The coldest and darkest months of the year will be a lot lighter and cozier with Amsterdam Light Festival Tickets. The boats are heated so that you won’t get cold. Along the route, you will see more than 35 works of art by various artists, designers, and architects that were created especially for the festival. The artworks are selected after a Call for Concepts. This gives everyone a fair chance to see his or her artwork at the Amsterdam Light Festival.
