Winter Magic Description

Winter Magic - Festival | Holiday Event | Parade in Amsterdam.

From the beginning of December through the middle of January, Amsterdam celebrates art and light on its historic canals with the annual Winter Magic festival. Winter Magic features art installations and light displays that interact with and illuminate the city’s iconic waterways.

The art from Winter Magic can be seen in Amsterdam’s cultural centers, city squares, and canals. Winter Magic also features a parade of historical ships decked out in dazzling lights under the Magere Brug. Before walking through the city to take in the lights and art installations, grab a cup of cocoa or cider from the stalls along the canals.

Winter Magic in Amsterdam is free and all ages are welcome to celebrate the season with art and light. After soaking in the lights, stop by the bustling Rembrandtplein for ice skating beneath some of Amsterdam’s most iconic buildings.
