Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most admired artists. But how much do you really know about his life? During this day trip from Brussels we travel to two historic destinations in the Dutch Province of North Brabant. We visit the place where he was born and grew up, Zundert. An official guide takes us through the Van Gogh House, the backyard, his father’s church and the graveyard (with the grave of his 1-year older brother Vincent…) and some other places that were important in his early life.
After a delicious buffet lunch we travel to a the small town of Nuenen, where Van Gogh lived for several years and painted about 25% of his entire oeuvre, including the famous painting “The Potato Eaters”. This is the place where he became a Master Painter. We spend time in the Vincentre museum, where we learn more about his life and his painting technique, while a guide walks with us around the village and shows where he painted, such as the little reformed “Van Gogh” church. Although we will not see original works of Van Gogh, from previous trips we can assure you that by visiting these historic places you will truly explore the life of Vincent Van Gogh that you cannot experience in for instance the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. On our return we’ll watch the amazing painted movie Loving Vincent. Just stunning!
“The visit in Nuenen was excellent, the guides very professional and very fond of their jobs. And also the visit in the museum.
The film, just amazing, great, fantastic, highly recommended.“
