Amsterdam Light Festival

Christmas is all about lights. So what I love to do, is walk around in my neighbourhood and see how neighbours illuminated their gardens and windows. And if that isn’t enough, there is always the Amsterdam Light Festival! From December 7th till January 20th you can enjoy the Boulevard of Light. Between the Amstel Hotel and the Munt, the river, bridges and public buildings undergo a true metamorphosis when they are illuminated. You can also see contemporary spectacular light sculptures like e.g. a horse the size of a building.

There is also an one hour itinerary to walk past illuminated historical buildings and 20 inspiring light objects. This so called Illuminade lasts until December 30th. I would highly recommend walking this route as it adds something magical and festive to the holidays season. Also stop by the Dam to admire department store Bijenkorf, the Magna Plaza mall, and the Palace.
