In the spotlight

The Dutch landscape will be put in the spotlight this year. The Cultural Heritage Agency, Staatsbosbeheer and the National Parks Bureau jointly devised the 'Masterpiece of Dutch Landscape' app, which was launched on 11 May with a live broadcast from the Oostvaarders Nature Experience Center.

The theme 'Ode to the landscape' puts the present, past and especially the future of the landscape in the spotlight. These concepts are inextricably linked and keep us busy as humans in life. The landscape is constantly changing due to climate change, rising sea levels and human intervention. Humans face the challenges of being able to continue to live in the landscape. Beautiful subjects to consider. That is why all kinds of activities are being organized, such as two new audio tours in the Oostvaardersplassen area. During this tour, in addition to information and poetry, you can also admire photos and landscape paintings by Dutch masters via the app.
