Open boat cruises – guided by your captain!

From the 28th of November 2019 to the 19th of January 2020 the 8th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival will be taking over the city. During this light art festival several artworks and installations from (inter)national artists, designers & architects will light up the city center of Amsterdam. On our small, open boats you’ll have unobstructed views of the artworks and the night city. You captain is your guide on this cruise and will tell you all about the sights and the light arts you pass.

Rather be warm and dry?

Do you prefer to be in a heated, covered canal cruise boat? That’s possible – go to our regular Amsterdam Light Festival cruise page.

    Theme edition 2019-2020

    The festival shines a new light on the city every year. This time, the artists have let themselves get inspired by the theme “Disrupt”. With disruption we often think of conflicts, chaos or danger. But it can also give a positive and sometimes essential impetus to change – think for example of the impact of the bitcoin and the #MeToo movement. Artists from home and abroad give their interpretation of disruption and use light in a unique way to be disruptive and give us new impulses.
