Festival of Lights

—Edition #10

Festival of LIghts is the annual canal event. Don’t miss out!

During the Amsterdam FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS (Winter 2022/ 2023), international light artists display their artwork and illuminate the city center. The best way to view the light art along the canals is from a boat.

The Festival of Lights is one of the tem best winter festivals in Europe
—The Guardian

We follow a special route to see the best of the Light Exhibition: we go onto the Amstel River, the New Emperor’s Canal, Plantage Muidergracht, Entrepotdock, Eastern Dock and Old Rampart. We end at a the same location as started.

The captain will be your captain, host, and guide in-one and give you a unique perspective of the city.

Join us and enjoy a first-class view on the light artworks from our saloon boat!
