Amsterdam Light Festival visits Beursplein 5


Amsterdam Light Festival brings light to the darkest time of the year and enlightens visitors with colorful artworks. Chairman Felix Guttman sounds the gong and opens trading at the Amsterdam exchange.

For 51 days, the historical center of Amsterdam is the unique decor for this international festival. The city is complemented by 35 light sculptures, projections and installations by contemporary (inter)national artists. The boat route, Water Colors, takes visitors past artworks along Amsterdam’s canals. The walking route, Illuminade, winds through the city center. During the festival, light plays a central role in the city as museums and cultural institutions organize light-related activities, introducing visitors to innovations in light art.
