  • As part of the Heerlen Rooftop Project, the top deck of the Q-Park car park Putgraaf, Heerlen is being turned into a green oasis. SCHUNCK will be organising free tours of the rooftop with a professional guide on a number of Sundays this summer.

Plant pots full of herbs, vegetables, edible flowers and seating areas will together provide an incredible setting, with panoramic views of Heerlen’s roofscape. To find out more about this project and its urban surroundings, three Rooftop tours have been organised this summer, on the last Sunday of each month.

About the tour

The tour starts in the foyer of SCHUNCK Glaspaleis. Local guide Jenny Kranendonk will first of all show you around a small exhibition in the Glaspaleis, before going on to the roof of Q-Park car park in Putgraaf. Here you will be given background information about the rooftop design created by Selvatico, an architects’ collective, whereby the garden has been be partitioned into so-called green rooms to promote biodiversity and bring nature into the city. Afterwards, Jenny - against the backdrop of the city’s rooftops - will give a short history of Heerlen.
