Amsterdam Light Festival 2021 - 2022

In the dark winter months of December 2021 and January 2022, Amsterdam will be transformed into a beautiful open-air light art museum for the 10th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival. For this anniversary edition, the festival has chosen the theme Celebrate Light. Through this theme the festival will celebrate both the light art they have displayed over the years and shine a light on social issues to remind guests that not everyone is able to participate in the celebrations.

Over the past decade modern artists from all over the world have made spectacular light artworks that have been displayed throughout the city centre during the festival's earlier editions. This year the artworks consist of the most appealing, inspiring and popular artworks of the past nine editions as well as new artwork.

The best boat tour of the Amsterdam Light Festival

The best way to enjoy these light artworks is with an Amsterdam Light Festival canal cruise. From the Amsterdam canals, you have a first-class view of the light art while you can relax and look around. The Amsterdam Light Festival route is designed in such a way that you can see all the artworks in the canals and on the quay.

Like in previous editions, LOVERS Canal Cruises is an official partner of the Amsterdam Light Festival. With this cruise you step on board a comfortable, modern and heated LOVERS canal boat at Central Station. From here, the Light Festival tour through Amsterdam takes you through the Weesperbuurt en Plantage borough of the city where the art collection is on display.

Along the way, the audio guide, in Dutch & English, tells you more about the beautiful light installations you pass by. The coldest and darkest months of the year will be a lot lighter and cosier with Amsterdam Light Festival boat tickets from Lovers Canal Cruises.
