Full description

Take part in one of Amsterdam's long-standing traditions: the Light Festival. Embark on a scenic boat trip through the world-famous canals and gaze at a selection of lit-up sculptures and projections from the water. Learn about each installation with the help of an audio guide.

Climb aboard a canal boat close to Central Station and take your seat for a front-row view of the city, as it's beautifully lit for the night. Enjoy panoramic views from the glass-roof barge, passing by illuminated merchant houses, and under the romantic bridges of the Amstel River.

Come across the unique light-up pieces built for the festival and see some of the city’s cultural institutions glittering against the night sky. Hear interesting facts about the innovative light sculptures you pass. End your adventure back at the starting point.
