After the opening, part of the works created specifically for Amsterdam become part of a permanent collection that travels around the world.
The light sculptures, art pieces and projections are installed from the most part along the Amsterdam canals in the old town as its mentioned in Amsterdam light festival map. They are there only for the duration of the festival. And you can take a walking route along these art pieces. It is called The Illuminade. A nice walk but sometimes crowded. Another option is to take a boat ride in the Amsterdam canals where the light sculptures are placed. This is called The Water Colours. A very interesting experience with the light reflections on the water surface. This one should not be missed.
