Find a Labyrinth

The Worldwide Labyrinth Locator is the best way to find locations of labyrinths and information about these labyrinths.  The Worldwide Labyrinth Locator is a joint project between Veriditas and The Labyrinth Society. Listings include: type of labyrinth, when it’s available, and a person you can contact via e-mail or phone.  There are now almost 2,000 entries in the Labyrinth Locator, and it’s growing every day. Please note that many owners of private labyrinths welcome guests, but they like you to phone first and say when you’re coming.
