During the late night Amsterdam Light Festival cruise from November 28th 2019 to January 19th, 2020, you could experience Amsterdam in a different light, literally. Last year “disrupted!” was the theme. A “disruption” or a sudden disruption is usually inconvenient, and has to do with conflicts, chaos and perhaps even danger. But disruption can also give a positive and sometimes essential impetus to change. It questions fixed assumptions, triggers new discussions, encourages people and organizations to take action and reveals unknown possibilities. discover all sides of this during the Amsterdam Light Festival.

Last edition you could experience the Amsterdam Light Festival cheaper than usual with this Late Night Cruise.

The Amsterdam Light Festival consists of many luminous sculptures that are all distributed throughout the city. This turned the Amsterdam canals into a luminous spectacle in the last months. The next edition will take place in December 2020 and January 2021.
