Amsterdam Light Festival 2021

During the evenings this winter, the center of Amsterdam turns into an open-air museum with spectacular light artworks. The Amsterdam Light Festival is the bright spot during the dark winter days. This year the festival of lights is already 10 years old! Will you visit and admire the artworks of this anniversary edition between December 2, 2021 and January 23, 2022?

Celebrate Light

The 53-day exhibition this year focuses on the theme ‘Celebrate Light: 10 years of Amsterdam Light Festival’. In this edition you look back on 10 years of light art and the most popular works of art from the past nine editions will return to the waters of Amsterdam this year.

Visit the exhibition

The route of the exhibition will consist of 20 works of art, including the public’s favorites and a number of new works. Admire the light artworks daily from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. With the exception of New Year’s Eve, from 8 p.m., the works of art make way for fireworks. The routes are for walkers, cyclists or those who admire it from the water by boat.

Canal cruise

While cruising on the Amsterdam canals, you have the best view of the light artworks. During the cruise, the skipper will take you along and tell you all the ins and outs about the artworks and the Celebrate Light theme. Admire all the works of art while enjoying a cup of hot Gl├╝hwein.

Walking route

Would you like to enjoy the most beautiful light artworks while walking at your own pace? That is possible! The works of art are visible and accessible to everyone. If you would like to learn more about the artworks, artists and the theme, you can order a digital map with all locations and descriptions or an audio tour via the organizer.
