Amsterdam Sights

Amsterdam Light Festival

December 1, 2016-January 22, 2017 | 5th edition

Amsterdam is transformed every year into a true city of lights with the help of contemporary (inter)national light artists. During this annual festival for young and old, both the residents of Amsterdam and the city's many visitors are treated to a spectacle of light. At the same time, the festival offers talented (young) light artists a platform to present their latest work.

Guide with maps

If you like to walk the route by yourself, you can buy a guide for €3.50. This guide includes information about the artworks and 2 maps with the routes. The program book is for sale at the Festival Kiosk, next to the Stopera at Waterlooplein. This is also the starting point of the walking route.
