About Amsterdam Light Festival
There are two festival routes: The Water Colours and The Illuminade.
The Water Colours is a boat route.
Taking a 75-minute boat ride along the canals is one of the best ways to experience these colorful and unique artworks.
There are many operators offering tours, and you can choose from driving your own boat to a private canal cruise (and everything in between!).
The Illuminade is a free walking route that takes you past 23 artworks in the Weesper and Plantage neighborhoods.
It will take about 90-minutes to cover the 3-kilometer route.
Each route has a different theme so we recommend taking both.
