Amsterdam Light Festival

This winter, Amsterdam will light up once again during Amsterdam Light Festival from 28 November till 18 January. This is the third edition of the winter light festival. For more than fifty days, the historical center of Amsterdam will be the unique décor for this international festival.

The city will be complemented by light sculptures, projections and installations by contemporary (inter)national artists. The boat route, Water Colors, will take visitors past artworks along Amsterdam’s canals and the Amstel. The walking route, Illuminade, winds through the city center. During the festival, light will play a central role in the city as museums and institutions organize light-related activities, introducing visitors to innovations in light art.  The theme for this year’s festival, ‘A Bright City’, challenges artists to create a tribute to life in the city. The resulting artworks present a unique take on the modern city of Amsterdam.
