Amsterdam: city of lights

Between magic and the spirit of Christmas, the 5th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival again this year promises beautifully illuminated walks and boat tours.

Created in 2011, the Amsterdam Light Festival offers the best international lighting artists the opportunity to exalt the maze of canals. For this 5th edition, 30 artworks offer a unique spectacle.

When night settles in, the little Venice of the north sparkles. Explore the city centre by boat and marvel at the numerous lights along the canals. Admire the illuminated facades of beautiful mansions and delight in a few dazzling moments. It is not unusual to see couples or families seated in their living rooms, like figures in real dollhouses.
