Since 2012, the city of Amsterdam organises the Amsterdam Light Festival. For 40 days, till the 17th of January, when daylight has gone, beautiful sculptures, projections and installation illuminate the city.
Visitors can follow a walking route that takes them along the light spectacle, free of charge.
There is also a special route for boats, for visitor to enjoy the or illuminating scenes from the water of the Amsterdam canals and the river Amstel. All the objects were made by contemporary (inter)national artists.
