Amsterdam Light Festival 2019-2020: DISRUPT!

Countless of colourful light artworks in the most dark period of the year: this year Amsterdam Light Festival promises a visual spectacle, putting the centre of Amsterdam in a whole different light. For this 8th edition of Amsterdam Light Festival with the theme 'disruption' 20 selected artists made their sculptures by their own interpretations. Even more exciting is the fact that also the city itself is part of the exhibition. Along the route several buildings and spots that somehow have a connection to the theme are being highlighted. Think: surprising traces of disrupting historic events, places that tell a special story and are part of the city's identity.

Route Amsterdam Light Festival

Because of this year's theme the Light Festival Amsterdam also comes with a different (#disrupting) route than the years before. The traditional route along the Herengracht is replaced by a route through the eastern part of the centre. The exhibition contains of about 20 light sculptures and five city stories which can be admired every day from 17.00 till 23.00 hours. Want to see the exhibition from the canals? Our hotels have put together special Amsterdam Light Festival packages including a special canal tour. Discover them all by clicking the button below!
