First Glow in the Dark Path Opens

For those of us who like to take strolls or bike rides in the dark that doesn’t involve murder, one city has made it easier for its citizens to do so.

On November 13th, in Eindhoven City, The Netherlands, the world’s first ever glow in the dark path opened up. With 5 different winding paths that stretch 280 Miles long (335 kilometers), it is completely illuminated by Solar Powered LED Lights. At night the mixture of green paint and “photo-luminising” powder achieve the glow in the dark status.

The path was inspired by artist Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” painting, and it even winds through his hometown of Dutch province, North Braban.

Designer Daan Roosegaarde states “I wanted to create a place that people will experience in a special way the technical combined with experience, that’s what techno-poetry means to me,”
