Amsterdam Light Festival Cruises

On 2 December 2021, the tenth edition of the most beautiful festival of lights of the year gets underway in Amsterdam. This anniversary edition has the fitting theme Celebrate Light, with which the festival wants to celebrates both the light art they have displayed over the years and shine a light on social issues, such as loneliness and child poverty, to remind guests that not everyone is able to participate in the celebrations.

This year the light show includes some of the public's favourite light art from the past ten years as well as new light art. The Amsterdam Light Festival artworks will be exhibited throughout winter in and around the canals of Amsterdam. The magical play between light and water can be seen from the quayside but is even more beautiful from a canal boat.

This year the best way to enjoy the festival is making a comeback: the Amsterdam Light Festival cruise. This year the Amsterdam Light Festival water route is back, it takes you on an almost 6 km long cruise through the Weesperbuurt en Plantage borough of the city.

What's more magical than enjoying a comfortable cruise through the canals of Amsterdam in the dark winter months? Enjoying a cruise during the Amsterdam Light Festival of course! Every evening the artwork will light up, and you can see this beautiful exhibition from a canal boat. Together with Lovers Canal Cruises, we offers three types of Amsterdam Light Festival cruises that will let you appreciate the festival at its best. The most famous and popular Amsterdam Light Festival cruise has two departure points to choose between, Central Station and Leidsekade. 

Do you want to take the best pictures? Then you can join the Semi-open boat cruise. The boat doesn't have any windows, so you are exposed to the colder weather but your view of the light art is perfect! If you prefer to enjoy the festival with a drink in your hand and delicious snacks at the ready, then the Drinks & Bites Cruise is for you! The drinks and snacks are included in the cruise so you won’t have to worry about a thing while on board.
