Amsterdam Festival of Light

Amsterdam Festival of Light

This December, the city of Amsterdam is illuminated by millions of twinkling bulbs and the holiday spirit for the Amsterdam Festival of Lights. Visitors to the city during this festive season can enjoy not only the wonderful sites of the city which are available at any time of the year – such as canal cruises, the Anne Frank house, tours of the diamond factory, and the Van Gogh museum – but they can also take in the breathtaking sites of the glittering city.

Here are just a few of the tours which your agent can book for you:

  • Locals will tell you that, when you visit Amsterdam, you should take two different cruises – one during the day and one at night, as you see two very different aspects of the city that way.  For your daytime tour, you could take a city tour by bus and boat, during which you can experience Amsterdam from both the land and the water.   Enjoy a tour of the diamond factory to see the gems for which Amsterdam is famous.  Included in the tour is a one hour cruise on the canals.
  • This December, it is the tour at night that is the real gem, as you have the opportunity to see the Festival of Lights.  For this, you have your pick of enjoying dinner, wine and cheese, or cocktails and snacks all while you cruise during your two or two and a half hour cruise.
  • While you’re in Amsterdam, be sure to take a day trip out to see the countryside.  Your agent can book you on a tour to see Marken and Volendam and small villages and Dutch windmills.  Or, take a day trip from Amsterdam into Belgium to visit Brussels or Bruges.

Amsterdam is fantastic year-round, but the holiday season lends an air of wonder to this magical city. Your FROSCH agent would be happy to help you take advantage of these opportunities!
