Lân fan taal is a free-state for all languages. In the framework of Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture 2018, Lân fan taal offers a podium for all kind of languages, including Frisian, but also slang, Braille, sign and body language, as well as dance, music and poetry. The visitor centre Obe is the portal to Lân fan taal.
The Wall of Languages with his revolving cubes visualizes the inconceivable amount of nearly 7000 living, recognized languages worldwide. Pinpointing your own language on these big walls is a way of defining your position in this world and realizing that your linguistic background is one of thousands of cultures to interact with.
