You can still visit the labyrinth, the impressive steel construction designed by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh on the occasion of C-mine’s 10th anniversary in 2015. Have a unique wander through 1 km of steel corridors.

Discover various spaces that allow you to experience your environment from a new angle.


Gijs Van Vaerenbergh

Gijs Van Vaerenbergh is the artistic and architectural duo behind this installation. These young designers had already captured the public’s imagination with their so-called 'see-through church' in Borgloon. For C-mine, they opted for an installation in the form of a maze, because mazes are both timeless and have evolved over time. It used to be that they were challenges people had to overcome in order to survive. But now, they’re simply a pathway to an adventure. People like to get lost… How about you?

The labyrint is continuously accessible.
