Amsterdam Light Festival
28 November – 19 January

From 28 November, the Amsterdam canals will once again be the backdrop for the spectacular light artworks and installations created by (inter)national artists, designers and architects: The Amsterdam Light Festival.

This year we will be sailing on salon boat De Jonckvrouw, the classic ‘mayor’s boat’ and official partner of the Amsterdam Light Festival. Experience the exhibition ‘DISRUPT!’ during the 8th edition.

The salon boat
Salonboot de Jonckvrouw is suitable for groups of up to 12 people and is equipped with all modern conveniences: toilet, fridge/bar, dimmable lighting and heating. In addition to a covered saloon, you can also take a seat on the aft deck.

Accompanied by our enthusiastic guides you will learn everything about the works of art on the water, the theme, the background stories, fun anecdotes and the city of Amsterdam. All guides speak Dutch and on request this is also possible in English.

On board we welcome you with a glass of hot chocolate or hot mulled wine. This is included in all tickets. There is also a bar with wine, beer and soft drinks on board and you can only pay by PIN. For private cruises we use an invoice on post-calculation.
