Amsterdam's festival of light

2017/2018 marks the fifth edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival. As with previous editions, a whole host of Dutch and international artists will contribute to the festival, creating site-specific light sculptures around the Canal Ring, the River Amstel and other special locations.

Tours & events during the Amsterdam Light Festival

Look out for dedicated canal cruises and a walking route taking in the selection of spectacular illuminated artworks. The renowned Water Colors canal cruises can be enjoyed for the entirety of the Amsterdam Light Festival, ensuring you can see the city at its best – from the water – and get up close to all of the major artworks. To explore the festival on foot, don't miss the Illuminade walking route. Also keep an eye out for guided tours and an extensive side-programme that will see a host of activities and events take place at museums, theatres, restaurants, shops and other locations in Amsterdam.

As the festival nears, more information will be made available. Head to the Amsterdam Light Festival website for more information and exclusive updates about the participating artist.
