Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

Happy new year 2017! As the year kickstarts, I want to get in some Colours of the Amsterdam Light Festival, the annual winter event of my city. I love the spirit of Amsterdam to celebrate the early dusk and long dark hours with a light festival every winter.


All along Herengracht, the gentleman's canal, are the light installations in different themes. The flower way above changes colours every half minute in different sections.

  Some 3D installations above, looks interesting from the bridge away but is a 2 dimensional frame up closed. Simple, abstract, fun installations all around the canal. There is also a canal boat ride of one hour offering the light festival tour. For me walking is the way. 

And the last but not least! Tulips that say it all, like the mascot of Amsterdam and whole of The Netherlands.
