This was a real surprise. starting in the centre of the town, you follow the numbered trail with pictures of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings and finishing up at the hospital, where he stayed.
This is a great experience for Van Gogh super-fans. It is easy to follow, the setting is pastoral, crowds low in the fall, easy to manuever, free parking close in. We rented a audio tour, it is maybe worth it, 3 Euros. It's pretty sobering...More

The setting is the former hospital where Van Gogh spent his final days and did a tremendous amount of painting. You get to see his small room as well and get an idea of what his life was like. Throughout the walk are posters of...More
