Amsterdam Light Festival 2022 -2023

In the dark winter months, Amsterdam traditionally transforms into a beautiful open-air light museum during the Amsterdam Light Festival. Modern artists from all over the world make spectacular light artworks that can be found in the city centre of Amsterdam.

The 11th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival has the theme Imagine Beyond. With this theme the festival will take you on a journey to the world of imagination. Imagination allows us to envision the day of tomorrow however we like, we can dream beyond the here and now. Join us on a cruise past the various light art, look through the windows and let your fantasy run wild.

The best boat tour of the Amsterdam Light Festival

The best way to enjoy the art of the festival is with Amsterdam Light Festival canal cruise. From the water, you have a first-class view of the light art while you can relax and take it all in. The water route of the festival is designed in such a way that you can see all the artworks that are both on the canals and on the quayside.

The modern and comfortable and heated boats from Lovers Canal Cruises are a great way to enjoy the Amsterdam Light Festival. Along the way, the audio guide (in Dutch & English) tells you more about the beautiful light installations you see along the light festival tour in Amsterdam.

Each works of art on display for this light tour through Amsterdam naturally tells its own story, however, there are many common themes and stories to discover. The coldest and darkest months of the year will be a lot brighter and cosier with Amsterdam Light Festival boat tickets.
