Amsterdam Light Festival

See Amsterdam in a new light as the canals are adorned in lighting designs just in time for the festive season.

City of illuminations

You don't always think of Amsterdam as the place to go to see one of the most dramatic light festival's in Europe. With exclusive lighting creations to view from the water or on land, the Amsterdam Light Festival is an opportunity to experience this picturesque city in a unique light.

The installations are set up along the canals, so a boat tour is the best and most comfortable way of viewing them all.

Don't miss artwork by famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei called Thinline, stretching over 6.5 km.

The land exhibition is a new development for 2018, set to take place on Marineterrein Amsterdam − in close proximity to Amsterdam Central Station.

As the crisp, cool nights start to close in at the end of November and the festive season begins, this is the perfect time to get away and experience this vibrant and beautiful city as you've never seen it before.
