Artis Sleepwalk + Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise Small Boat



Combine an unforgettable Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise with a visit to ARTIS! With this deal you experience the historic animal park in the dark and you can also enjoy the fantastic light show on and around the canals from a comfortable and luxurious boat.


ARTIS - Sleep walk

Always wanted to visit ARTIS in the dark? Then this is your chance! ARTIS organizes the Sleep Walk from December 6. While the artworks of Amsterdam Light Festival illuminate the city, ARTIS is one of the darkest places in Amsterdam.

With the help of a special app you can experience ARTIS in the dark after opening time. How do flamingos sleep on one leg? Why do mushrooms give light and how do bats hunt in the dark? Get answers to all these questions during this special walk. Make sure your phone is sufficiently charged (50%) because the app will show you the way. Download the free app (Dutch and English version) from November 28 in the App Store or Google Play Store.

Amsterdam Light Festival

Before 2019/2020, ARTIS is a cultural partner of the Amsterdam Light Festival. The theme of this edition is "Disrupt". Disruption or disruption is not only conflict and chaos, but can also give positive and sometimes essential impetus to change. Artists from home and abroad will show their interpretation of disruption this year and use light to be disruptive and to give us a new impulse.
