AMSTERDAM AFTER DARK HAS A LOT MORE THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT!
Most people go to Amsterdam for the broad minded culture or the scenery, but if you go during winter time, there is lots more to see... The annual Amsterdam Light Festival is definitely worth the Eurostar, and the Christmas shopping isn't too bad either!
From 30 November 2017 until 21 January 2018 Amsterdam's city centre transforms again into the largest open-air light museum in the world!
As usual, the city works with national and international artists, architects and designers to create city wide spectacles all produced by neon lights.
This year sees a new location, and the water based exhibition will be at the Marineterrein Amsterdam, which walking distance from Amsterdam’s Central Station.
As well as the canal show, there is an equally impressive land exhibition which takes place from 14 December until 7 January, and has no admission fee, so there is something to get even the most grumpy Santa's in the mood.
