In only a few years time, Amsterdam Light Festival turned into a very popular, cultural festival of light. For almost two months you will come across various light objects and art installations throughout Amsterdam. You can either let faith be your guide, or you can do the walking or cycling tour, or hop on one of the cruises. These various tours will guide you along many of the light art. Along the road there are plenty of opportunities to warm up with soup, hot chocolate milk, or something stronger, if you like.
