Van Gogh Village Nuenen Tours

Van Gogh Village Nuenen
Artist Vincent Van Gogh spent two years living in the village of Nuenen in the Netherlands and today the village serves as an open air museum in his honor. Importantly, Nuenen is where Van Gogh painted his masterpiece, The Potato Eaters. Visitors can follow walking or cycling routes through the village, passing 21 locations related to Van Gogh’s stay in Nuenen. Fourteen of those locations were painted by Van Gogh on at least one occasion. Information columns stand outside of most of the locations to provide visitors with insight as to their significance.

The Vincentre is the visitor center in Nuenen and serves as a good starting point for walks throughout the village.  The building previously served as the town hall from 1874 to 1953. Inside the Vincentre, a permanent exhibition uses advanced technology to tell the story of Van Gogh and Nuenen. Visitors can hear from people Van Gogh knew, follow his footsteps to where he traveled before arriving in Nuenen, experience the atmosphere of when he arrived in 1883 and listen to passages from letters he wrote.
