Amsterdam Light Festival 2021 - 2022

In the dark winter months of December 2021 and January 2022, Amsterdam will once again be transformed into a beautiful open-air museum filled with light art. This year we will celebrate 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 Semi-Open Boat tour of the Amsterdam Light Festival

The best way to enjoy the festival is with a Amsterdam Light Festival cruise. This Amsterdam Light Festival Semi-Open Boat tour will give you the best view of the beautiful light sculptures as you cruise through the canals of Amsterdam.

When the stars are out your view will be unobstructed so you can make the most beautiful photos. You will also be provided with blankets, to keep away the winter chill. If the winter weather turns wet, the boat is easily closed with a glass-top or a regular canal boat is used. Either way, with a canal cruise you are certain to have the best seats to enjoy the show.

This cruise departs next to Restaurant Loetje, at the square outside Central Station. From here, you will enjoy a 75 minute cruise along the Amsterdam Light Festival water route, which allows you to see all the art of the festival.

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 semi-open boat tickets from Lovers Canal Cruises.
