Our recorded route from the open-air exhibition of international light art in Amsterdam

The Amsterdam light festival is best known as a boat trip.
But if you go by bike or footbike (scooter) you can stay at a light monument as long as you want.
These means of transport fits within the conscious and sporty mission of Lex and the City.

Below you see the bike track along the light artworks and installations of contemporary (international) artists, designers and architects, which Lex and the City recorded at the start of #ALF. It shows this year’s track (2021 – 2022) i. (This year until the Toronto bridge; Amstel Hotel, so a bit longer than in 2019; 7 km.)
