Tall chairs in the low country

Tuesday, August 11, 2020
Regional partners in the Netherlands have developed a unique initiative to draw extra attention to the Limburg section of the LF Maasroute (the Dutch part of EuroVelo 19 - Meuse Cycle Route). In collaboration with artist Patrick Kusters, the Province of Limburg and ten municipalities have placed striking ‘blow-up’ art along the route.

Limburg artist Patrick Kusters created ten enormous seats along the Meuse Cycle Route, also providing additional resting points to cyclists. The works of art are made with durable, robust materials, such as wood and steel and each of them refers to a special story from the municipality. These unusual creations spark the cyclists’ journeys along the route and generate extra social media attention. Have you seen them yet? Share your experience online using #MaasrouteLimburg!

A cycling map of the Limburg part of the LF Maasroute, including information about the artworks, is available for two euros at the Limburg VVV's or via The map also contains five local cycling routes that connect to EuroVelo 19 via the junction system. More information about this project can be found at
