During the dark winter months, Amsterdam gets transformed into a beautiful light art festival. Artists, designers and architects from all over the world will light up the city center through various works of art and installation.
The Amsterdam Light Festival is best discovered from our comfortable and heated boat. Through the audio guide (in Dutch and English) you’ll learn more about the artworks you pass, while you order a snack and drink from the waiter.
The 8th edition of the festival will take place from 28th of November 2019 to 20th of January 2020. Blue Boat is an official partner of Amsterdam Light Festival.
To give something back to the city in which we operate as a company, we commit ourselves every year during the holidays to a charity that improves the quality of life in Amsterdam. This year it’s StreetSmart Amsterdam. This organization offers help and meals for homeless people and families living on or below the poverty line in Amsterdam.
If you order drinks on board, we will add € 1,- to your bill. This euro goes entirely to StreetSmart and 100% of their income goes directly to the charity. More information about StreetSmart and how the proceeds will be spent can be found here.
