Aims. With this paper we want to investigate the highly variable afterglow light curve and environment of gamma-ray burst (GRB) 060526 at z = 3: 221. Methods. We present one of the largest photometric datasets ever obtained for a GRB afterglow, consisting of multi-color photometric data from the ultraviolet to the near infrared. The data set contains 4 12 data points in total to which we add additional data from the literature. Furthermore, we present low-resolution high signal-to-noise spectra… Expand
