Full description
Set off on a small boat tour including gluhwein (mulled wine), a panoramic view of the city, and a front-row seat to wonderful art exhibitions. Your agile boat will allow you to get up close to many of these magical installations.

Your guide has been following this festival closely for the last 5 years and knows all of its ins and outs. With your guide, you can discuss the artist’s inspiration, including what moves them and what they wanted to express through their works. You can share ideas, insights, and opinions, and can hopefully walk away from this experience more inspired, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about art and what it offers.

Outside of all the light artworks, you will also visit some of the main highlights that Amsterdam offers. You will encounter highlights such as the seven bridges, the UNESCO-listed Gordel Canal, and many more of the most beautiful scenes at night.
