The Amsterdam Light Festival was first organized in 2012, with great success. It is organized every year, from about mid December to mid January (the exact dates vary).
The festival lasts for several weeks, and consists of several outdoor illuminated works of art in the centre of Amsterdam.
On the festival website you can find a walking tour along the works, and also information about boat tours.
The festival has two parts, with separate works of art:
- a walking tour
- a tour which is specifically designed to be best seen from a boat. Tour companies will offer special boat tours. It is also possible to walk or bicycle along the route (although walking everything might be a bit of a long distance).
