Plan your route
Distance:

Do you like to build? Or do you prefer seeing something collapse? Do you want to know what gets hundreds of Frisians moving together? And are you curious about seeing the Capital of Culture in action? Whatever your interest, Leeuwarden will be the most fun place in Europe on 8 July 2018. On that day, 8ste dag (the 8th day) will cause a 5-hour chain reaction of people, things, machines, constructions and performances right through the centre of the town. Arrive early and find a good place along the route, or watch the live television broadcast on the Wilhelminaplein and the Oldehoofsterkerkhof. 

Some of the things you’ll see on 8 July include 12,000 books falling over (a world record attempt!), collapsing structures, 25 ponytails being cut off, a caravan riding on water and a couple getting married (really!).

The 8th day is about life. About the influence that people have on each other and the world. The chain reaction is like life. It often runs smoothly but sometimes there’s a hitch. Life isn’t perfect. But it’s definitely worth getting going again.

The 8th day is part of the main programme of Leeuwarden-Friesland 2018 European Capital of Culture.
