You cannot get closer to Van Gogh…
Stand where Van Gogh stood, see what he saw and painted. Then and now. It’s now 130 years further on, yet still everything is visible, tangible and within reach. Walk in Vincent van Gogh’s footsteps. What makes it unique is that the stories about Van Gogh, his letters and his paintings all come together in the same place.Vincentre
Hear stories about him in the Vincentre museum and read stories about Nuenen as it was when he lived and worked here from 1883 to 1885. Get to know him as a person and see him develop to become a world-famous artist, including the Potato Eaters.
Audio tour available in 8 languages (including English).Outdoor museum
After visiting the Vincentre, go outside where no fewer than 23 locations remind us of Van Gogh; 14 of these are locations painted or sketched by him. The others are statues or buildings with a special relevance. There is even a large bronze statue based on the Potato Eaters painting.
Despite there being no original paintings, our senses are aroused: you cannot get closer to Van Gogh. Information columns along the route tell us about the places he painted. Ask for the ‘Out and about with Vincent’ book in the Vincentre.Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path
Pearls like stars in the asphalt, also giving out light in the darkness. Never before was a cycle path so romantic. It’s as though they are celestial stars in the South of France from the Van Gogh painting ‘The Starry Night’. The cycle path runs between the Opwetten and Collse Watermills.Addresse data
