Brighten up the darkest days
Winter in Amsterdam. It probably makes you think of early sunsets and cold nights. The perfect time to stay inside and snuggle up on the couch. We hear you. But what a shame it would be to miss out on this year’s Amsterdam Light Festival! This event is the best reason to get out the house and into the city. Take our word for it. More than 35 breathtaking installations of light will illuminate the city for over 50 days in a row. This spectacle of art and light will put the entire city under a cozy spell once again. Come and see for yourself.
Get on a boat
The best way to enjoy the illuminated scenes is from the water. No doubt about it. All the mesmerizing lights are magnified by the water’s reflection.
