Full description

If you’re visiting Amsterdam this winter, you're in for a special treat with the city's Light Festival. During the fest, the historical center of Amsterdam is illuminated with light sculptures, projections, and installations by contemporary national and international artists. When booking, you can choose between several departure points located in the city centre of Amsterdam. Along the way, an audio guide will explain, in Dutch and English, the stories behind the beautiful light installations surrounding the tour. The coldest and darkest months of the year will be a lot lighter during this canal cruise. From the Amsterdam canals, you have a first-class view of the light artwork while you relax in maximum comfort. 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.
