Amsterdam's festival of light
The fifth edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival will see a host of Dutch and international artists contribute to the festival, creating site-specific light sculptures around the Canal Ring, the River Amstel and other special locations. 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 visitors can see the city at its best — from the water — and get up close to all of the major artworks. There are also 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.
