Amsterdam Light Festival Boat Cruise 

From December 1, 2022, to January 22, 2023, the Amsterdam Light Festival will take place for the 11th time. Amsterdam will be fantastically illuminated in the winter, with many bridges and historic buildings beautifully illuminated.

The Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise heated ships start from the jetty next to "This is Holland" and the "Adam Tower" in Amsterdam Noord. On the way, the skipper will tell guests in Dutch and English about the beautiful works of art and the highlights of the city. There is also an extensive information brochure available in Dutch, English, German, Spanish and Italian which is distributed to all the guests.

The departure location is the Pier next to the "This is Holland" and the A'dam Tower at Overhoeksplein, and the dock features the large banners of the Amsterdam Light Festival. The location is easily accessible from Central Station by taking the free ferry F3 "Buiksloterweg". From the ferry, walk immediately to the left towards the A'dam Tower (the tower with the swing on the roof), and after 250 metres, there is a bridge to cross, where the departure pier of Amsterdam Boat Cruises is visible on the right-hand side.

Theme: Imagine Beyond

The Amsterdam Light Festival is one of the leading light art festivals in the world. The theme of the 11th edition is Imagine Beyond.

The best way to enjoy these artworks of light is by sailing through the canals. From the water, they have a first-class view of these artworks while visitors can relax looking around. The almost six kilometre long Amsterdam Light Festival water route has been mapped out in such a way that all the works of art are visible in the canals and on the quay.
