GANZFELD IS OPEN FOR GUIDED TOURS EVERY SUNDAY AT DAYTIME

FROM 11 AM TO 4 PM EVERY SUNDAY

NO PREBOOKING NEEDED

 

Every sunday, all through the year we offer guided tours at daytime inside James Turrells magical light installation: Ganzfeld: Double Vision. Ganzfeld  is built inside an old water reservoir from the 1920s, where the room is filled with light and color which is a both visual and physical experience for visitors. You will experience Ganzfeld: Double Vision where the guide tells you about the artist and artwork. You will also see Skyspace: the color beneath which only can be fully experienced during the sunrise or sunset. The Sunday guided tours are free of charge with a drop-in system. No pre-booking available.
