We took the walk on a very hot day but we had fun doing it. It is a few kilometers long but there are painting at quite regular intervals. Some of the paintings are a little tricky to find and we had fun looking for them. If you take it, make sure you get the map which has the paintings... More

I was looking forward to the walk but it was so hot that it was difficult to complete the path. It would've have been good if the paintings in the panels were larger. It's a brilliant idea and I hope it'll be further developed.

They placed the Van Gogh pictures where he painted the scene. You can just imagine and feel like he was right there. It was a quaint walk in the country side. Note: bring an umbrella or rain gear. It rain really hard on us without much notice and there is no place to hide from the rain.

The walk from St. Remy to the asylum where VanGogh spent a productive year is lined with examples of his work that reflect the landscape and people you can still find around this beautiful area. You really feel like you're seeing the same landscape as the artist, though it's changed over the past 120 years in some significant respects.

Park your car at the tourist office, get you map at the tourist office and off you go. It's a very nice walk, but don't go looking for nr. 14 & 21. They have dissapeared!

Started at the end and went backwards which makes no difference at all to the enjoyment of the walk. I loved getting a sense of some of the paintings and could see where some of the scenes came from in the area - having the English translations was very helpful, I doubt that if it'd been just in French it...

We took this walk and part of a longer walk, starting from our hotel (Les Sources). This meant we came upon the Van Gogh Walk at the end, i.e. at the Town Hall of Saint Remy. Why this is the end of the walk excapes our intelligence. Most people start here of at the Tourist office, which is around number... More

We took the walk on the way from St Remy to Glanum. It was ok and we learned a bit about some of Van Gogh's works, however it wasn't something I'd specifically set out to do. It seemed that some of the signs were in places that they were just trying to fill a spot.

Historical site well worth the visit, interesting display of Van Gogh history. The hospital where he was a patient and the various fields he painted, from inside the hospital or on site.
