“A Walk with Van Gogh in that spring breeze...”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We learned shortly before we got there that this small village is part of the province Noord-Brabant of Holland. As fans of Richard Wagner's works, Brabant reminds us of the swan knight Loherangrin. Anyway, we arrived at the town on Monday, and the visitor center was supposed to be closed. But the lady working there was so kind to offer us in and let us buy a small book guiding us on a trail with several sites VVG had painted works at.

The walk along the trail was fantastic. Spring breeze brushed us as if we became the objects of VVG. Everything was so quiet and time hardly traveled. In the fields where he painted the windmill, we seemed to encountered his lonely shadow right there. Although it was a short 30-minute walk, it'd last till end of time.

“Interesting”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We paid a visit to the Van Gogh village and came to know more and more about Vincent young in Nuenen. For people interested it is really nice to see the spots Vincent painted from. A real recommendable venue for Vincent lovers
