  • Beautiful - particularly on a wind still evening along the canals! Very special and I've not seen anything as pretty as this in a town/city at night. 
  • The route leads you along nice historical locations in the Centre of the city which is usually not in the tourist routes. The works of art of light are sometimes quite nicely, but usually not so much for. Still, nice to have such a one and a half hours to stroll through the city.

  • Guided tour through the streets of the city in various lighting installations. The idea is very nice and the best way to visit all the points is definitely the dedicated application, which works well and also has the gps function. Unfortunately I did not get to see everything, but I really hope to return to Utrecht to do it!
