A Place of Magic and Wonder
During the short days and long dark nights in Winter, Amsterdam becomes a place of Magic and Wonder. Over 25 Light Art Works will be shown in and around the city’s Canals. Imagine yourself: A warm glass of gluhwein in your hands, the sound of water lapping softly against the sides of the boat as we drift beneath Amsterdam’s iconic bridges, Magical Artworks and past its magnificent 17th-century canal houses.
On board this amazingly comfortable and quiet electric boat, you’ll have heated seats, gluhwein (mulled wine), a panoramic view of the city and a front row seat to these wonderful art exhibitions. Especially, as onboard you can go up close and even through these pieces!
For the last five years I’ve been closely involved with this festival. I know some of these artists personally! We’ll discuss the artist’s inspiration, what moves them, and what they wanted to express through their work. We’ll share ideas, insights and opinions and hopefully we’ll all leave more inspired, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about art and what it can offer us. So, join me and let me show you the city, her canals, the light festival and why I am so passionate about art.
Besides all the Light Artworks we also visit some of the main highlights that Amsterdam offers in the Evening. Like the Seven bridges, The Unesco world heritage Canal gordel and some of the most beautiful scenes at night.
