amsterdam light festival


november 2019 - january 2020

Each year, hundreds of submissions are submitted by designers, architects and artists from around the world. A selection committee then chooses 30 artworks which made up the festival’s installations, which in past years have included prominent artists such as Ai Weiwei. The theme for this year's edition is 'the medium is the message'. Artists have taken inspiration from this statement by Canadian scientist Marshall McLuhan. Read about the artworks featured in this year's festival. 

The sculptures can be spotted all over Amsterdam city centre for the duration of the festival, illuminating and transforming its familiar monuments in magical and surprising new ways. You can make your own way through the installations, or follow recommended routes for boats, bikes or walking, which allow you to see the festival in its best light.

Our restaurant is currently closed due to renovation. At the beginning of 2019 we will re-open with a brand-new look, which will perfectly match the rich history and our dedication to the high level of hospitality of restaurant De Roode Leeuw you are accustomed to.

Brasserie De Roode Leeuw dates back to 1911 and enjoys an outstanding reputation, renowned for its Dutch regional specialties and is considered an Amsterdam institution.

Of course we will keep you informed of the progress of the renovation. We are looking forward to welcome you back at our brasserie after completing the renovation!
