Welcome to Nuenen, the Town where Vincent van Gogh lived

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

Two years of his life, Vincent van Gogh lived in the small town of Nuenen in the south of the Netherlands. During those productive years, he painted more than 180 works that mainly show the everyday life of people around town. Farmers, still-life paintings and the famous artwork ‘The Potato Eaters’ date back to this period.

Nowadays, you can still visit the places where Van Gogh used to sketch and work. The town is a real outdoor museum with 23 locations that will bring the story of the artist closer to you. In the museum Vincentre, you can learn about the artist’s life and read the letters that he wrote during his time in Nuenen.

Do you love Vincent van Gogh as much as we do? The Vincent van Gogh house museum in Zundert is also a great option! Get tickets for the Museum Vincent van Gogh House here.

A painter with a much intense life. Great to see a little bit of his roots instead of only his art.
