Amsterdam Light Festival (November, 27 to January, 17) It's the perfect time to discover one of the most charming cities in Europe. For over 50 nights, the streets of Amsterdam are decorated with thousands of lights in its buildings, squares, trees and monuments. But light is not the only highlight. The festival also features events like the Heineken Night Concert or the Christmas Canal Parade.
Grachtenfestival is a week-long outdoor classical music festival held every August in Amsterdam. The festival's grand finale, the free Prinsengracht Concert, is held on a floating barge on the Prinsengracht Canal in front of the Pulitzer Hotel. Starting that morning, thousands of boats, large and small, stake out their spots. Day-long floating parties culminate in a shimmering, magical concert held under the stars. >>> Sounds awesome
One of the annual highlights in the centre of Amsterdam is the free Prinsengracht Concert, a spectacular classical extravaganza. The music is performed on a pontoon on the canal, while the audience listens from boats or the canalside. The event takes place in August outside the Hotel Pulitzer.
