  • Be among the first to see the spectacular sculptures of the Amsterdam Light Festival from a unique angle
  • Stay warm in the comfort of a heated cruise boat, with a Dutch or English audio guide to explain the sights
  • Enjoy a relaxing 75-minute cruise along the beautiful canals, longer if the canals are very busy!

Experience Amsterdam in a different light. Literally. This year marks the 11th year of the Amsterdam Light Festival, and the theme of this year's festival is Imagine Beyond. Soak up a world of imagination, where expertly lit sculptures will wow you along Amsterdam's illuminated canals.

Cruise past the various light art from a heated boat. Look through the windows and let your fantasies loose. Are those talking lamps you're looking at, virtual bridges, water flowing uphill?

Listen to the audio guide in Dutch or English as you snuggle up and see Amsterdam like you've never seen it before.

Really nice experience: Amsterdam by night is magic and the cruise to see the artworks is something I highly recommend, specially if it's your first time in the city.

Cruising the canals at night is a beautiful and relaxing experience, and now it’s a great time to do it, when we have all these crazy light sculptures all around the canals. Recommended!
