Van Gogh route

(48.3 km)

Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Nuenen from December 1883 to November 1885. His stay in Nuenen is considered one of the most important and productive periods of his life. With great dedication, he produced 194 paintings in Nuenen, including 'The Potato Eaters', 313 drawings, 25 watercolours and 19 letter sketches.

In addition, Nuenen itself and its surroundings form a collection in itself. No fewer than 23 buildings and landscapes have a direct relationship with Vincent's two-year stay in Nuenen. Of these 23 objects, 14 have been painted or drawn by him on one or more occasions. The Van Gogh cycle route runs along this living collection. Nuenen and also the Laarbeek area can be seen as an 'open air museum'. Nowhere else are there so many buildings, sculptures and landscapes which have a direct relationship with Van Gogh. Like windmill De Vogelenzang in Lieshout, which features in several of Van Gogh's drawings.
