Vincent van Gogh House and Gallery, Zundert
Van Gogh was born on 30 March 1853 in Zundert where he spent his childhood. The Vincent van Gogh House is not a museum in the classic sense, but a world of engaging experiences depicting the
artist´s life and work. The Church and graveyard from Van Gogh´s time are just a stone´s throw away. This location is home to a gallery and a Artist in residence programme where artists from the Netherlands and
abroad can work for a time in the spirit of Van Gogh.
Tip: Once you have finished your tour of the exhibition, we recommended visiting the Brasserie Auberge Van Gogh next door.

Van Gogh Church, Etten-LeurAfter deciding to become an artist, Vincent van Gogh returned to his parent´s house in Etten from April to December 1881. There he found his first models and was inspired by the landscape. The church where
his father was vicar is now dedicated to Vincent´s beginnings as an artist. You can see and hear how Van Gogh created the foundation for his later masterpieces.

Van Gogh Village Nuenen and Vincentre
From December 1883 to November 1885, Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Nuenen. Today, Nuenen is a historical Van Gogh village with no less than 23 buildings and sites in the landscape reminiscent of Van Gogh. This is where the artist created one quarter of his work as well as his first masterpiece “The potato eaters“. In the museum Vincentre, one learns that Van Gogh lived and painted in Nuenen. Ultra-modern audiovisual technology takes visitors back to this time.

Depicting fragments from the famous painting, they provide a subtle play of light and poetry. Techno poetry, as the artist Daan Roosegaarde himself calls it. A sensory experience!
