Mysteryland’s extensive arts and cultural program was also a major festival highlight, featuring the Kunstpad “Art Path”, along with interactive installations, light art and the Healing Garden. Visitors could also get a tattoo at the ‘Tropenmuseum’ and the entire site was decorated with all sorts of colorful decorations, creating surreal moments and discoveries.
