Follow the pink birdhouses.

Reach Mediamatic by bike, boat, bus, car, foot, train and/or tram.

Perhaps you've seen them around, or read about them in the Parool. Since recently, Oostenburg is host to a series of pink birdhouses. They lead the way. Since Mediamatic moved from the Vijzelstraat in the center of town to the VOC-kade, it has been a bit more difficult to find us. And we figured there are already too many signs clouding your view.

Birds can build their nests in the birdhouses. With a bit of luck the Blue Tit, Willow Tit, Marsh Tit, and/or Crested Tit will comfortably settle into their new homes. There were a lot of things we had to take into consideration, such as the positioning of the birdhouses and the size of the entrance hole. Different birds prefer different homes and have different requirements. Subsequently, the birdhouses not only point you in the right direction, but they're also a small gift to the city.


Follow the pink birdhouses - All over the Oosterburgereiland we hang pink birdhouses. It is a trail that if which you follow end at Mediamatic. Tim van Remundt
