The Land Art in Flevoland can be found in the municipalities of Noordoostpolder, Zeewolde, Lelystad and Almere and is usually located in the outside areas of these towns. Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to travel to more than one location with public transport, but by car the route of six art works can be covered in one day. Possible luncheon facilities along the route are city estate De Kemphaan in Almere (next to De Groene Kathedraal), De Cantine next to Museum Nieuw Land in Lelystad (with a view on Exposure) or the visitor centres of the Oostvaardersplassen in Lelystad or Almere.
Use this map on Google Maps with your smart phone to make your tour on location. Please note that phone and internet reception is unreliable in these remote areas of Flevoland! To be certain it's best to bring a print out of the map and location details. The route description below will lead you from art work to art work, in the same order that's used for the bus tours (Almere - Lelystad - Zeewolde - Almere).
For those using GPS: the postal codes of the locations are mentioned below, following the title of the work. Please note that most locations do not have an official address or house number, so your GPS will only lead you there 'approximately'. In order to find the right exit or entrance on the spot, we advise you to take a print out of the exact location (see Google Maps above).
