Under the motto "A Bright City", the third Amsterdam Light Festival has transformed the Dutch capital into a giant celebration of light art – on land and water. Visitors can experience a fascinating series of artworks on the Water Colors boat tour, including installations that interact with those passing by.

The second part of the festival, the Illuminade, will be officially opened on Thursday 11. December. More than 40 installations by international artists will enthrall visitors through the dark month of December by making Amsterdam a truly "bright city". The Amsterdam Light Festival runs until 18. January 2015.
