Amsterdam Light Festival is best seen from the water. Many artworks and light art exhibits are located along the boat route through the Amsterdam canals.


The artworks' reflections cause a magical interplay between light and water. Board our beautifully-decorated vessel and allow our audio guide to tell you about the light art located along the route. One masterpiece after another will slide into view while you look through the windows at the enchanting canals of Amsterdam. An unforgettable experience for young and old!
