Op Zoek Naar de Verloren Tijd (In Search Of Lost Time)

Scent is strongly connected to memory and can take us back to another time and place in seconds. To love, your grandmother’s house, or the gym of your primary school for example. Is this also possible with a city? Visual artist Sanne Vaassen designed a walk of scent through the history of Maastricht. During this walk, you will discover parts of the history of this ancient city by smelling herbs, flowers and other extracts.

Walk with Sanne Vaassen

On December 1st, you can experience the walk together with Sanne Vaassen. Starting at 11 AM, we will welcome you with coffee and vlaai. Erik J. De Jong provides an introduction to walking as a term, after which Sanne will take you through the process of Op Zoek Naar De Verleden Tijd. At 12 PM, you can either walk the tour together with Sanne, or by yourself. The tour is 12 kilometers through the city centre and around Maastricht, so make sure to wear sturdy shoes. We’ll provide you with a bottle of water.

To participate to this event, we ask you to have the guide in your possession. Maybe you already bought it from our webshop, or received it as a gift, but you can also buy the guide at our reception desk for 20 euros. We ask an extra 5 euros per participant. Children and young adults under the age of 18, can join for free.

Do you want to walk with us? Great! You can register via tineke.kambier@marres.org. If you have a question, please email Tineke as well.
