Art In Abundance


From whatever direction you come, the road to Ootmarsum is full of natural beauty. The town is in the middle of the essen landscape of Twente (plots of elevated arable land), which can only be described as picturesque. It is hallowed soil to many of the artists that live, work and exhibit their art here. Take a city tour through the streets and alleyways and you will eventually pass the many galleries, studios and museums. Ootmarsum has art in abundance. This is especially true in August, during the annual 'Kunst in Ootmarsum' - Art in Ootmarsum event. This year, the event takes place from 21 to 23 August, featuring hundreds of of artists and thousands of visitors.
