Literary Routes

Wandering through the world of literature. This is possible with the smartphone app Literary Routes, developed by 7scenes and comissioned by the Literature Museum in The Hague. Discover which places have inspired writers or visit sites that play an important part in novels or poems. The app is full of literary stories which will come to life with video, audio and texts.

The audience will be guided to locations that play a part in the life and work of major writers and poets. With this app literature enthusiasts can learn more about the major literary places in the Netherlands. Experience The Hague through the eyes of Jan Siebelink, immerse yourself in the fin de siècle of Couperus or discover the major writers who once have visited Noordwijk.

A literary platform

Besides the app we've developed a complete platform to enable the Literature Museum to independently create these Routes. It's the Museum's ambition to have the app become a nationwide mobile platform on which many Dutch writers and poets will be represented. The routes will be developed in collaboration with partners like literary institutes, museums, publishers and archives.
