Update: The illuminade is closed as of January 9, 2017!

The walking route Illuminade takes you past 23 light artworks through the culturally rich neighborhoods Weesper and Plantage. The outdoor exhibition showcases artworks that have been created specifically for Amsterdam Light Festival by (inter)national talent. From bright projections on historical buildings to dynamic lighting systems in city parks to works that you can actually walk through, the artworks add an extra dimension to the public space. Illuminade offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy contemporary culture and the beauty of light, for free. 

The Water Colors boat route still takes place until 22 January 2017. Want to go? Book a ticket for the boat route Water Colors!
