Chilling in the Sunflower Maze

After last year’s success, the Sunflower Maze in Amsterdam Noord is back! The maze is a green co-creation as well as a unique concert venue.

Throughout July and August, the maze is open to visitors every weekend from noon – 6PM. It’s the perfect place to chill and explore. The maze was initiated by the Stichting Groene Co-Creaties (The Green Co-Creations Foundation), a foundation that was set up to inspire people to get back in touch with nature and to work together on a healthy city environment.

20.000 sunflowers
Over 20,000 sunflowers and other wild flowers form a heaven for bees and other insects. The amazing thing is, all of these flowers were seeded by the citizens of Amsterdam! The maze literally is a green co-creation. With this maze, the citizens of Amsterdam made something with each other for one another.

Concerts and yoga
The maze is hidden well, behind a row of high trees in the middle of Amsterdam Noord. When you get there, it feels like you stepped out into a green oasis. In the middle of the maze, there is a space for acoustic concerts, yoga and colorful theater performances. For the little ones, there is an educational treasure hunt hidden in the maze. Are you ready to explore?
