Day 1: Following Vincent Van Gogh’s Footsteps

Especially for those curious about Vincent Van Gogh, Nuenen is a must-visit. Vincent was born and worked most of his life in Brabant, and his influence can be seen all over this beautiful town. As many as 23 buildings and landscapes in Nuenen were painted by the world-famous artist.

During our stay, the guides gave us an exceptional tour, following painting to painting. What made this extra special is that the next day we were going to see a couple of the paintings in real life at the Museum!

Together with the guides, we literally followed in Van Gogh’s footsteps, heard all the stories, read his letters, and visited the Vincentre. This visitor center offers a deep dive into Van Gogh’s life and work in Nuenen. We also visited Nune Ville, which you can see in the picture above, and it was really impressive. This house, depicted in Van Gogh’s paintings, holds a significant place in his history.

After that, we had dinner at De Watermolen van Opwetten, where we enjoyed delicious food with beautiful views. My absolute favorite was the dessert, which was my all-time favorite: cheesecake.

Day 2: Exploring Van Gogh’s Inspiration

After this delightful dinner, we still had another surprise waiting for us. We visited the Van Gogh’s Starry Night cycle path. This unique path is adorned with thousands of sparkling stones, creating a stunning visual effect that mimics Van Gogh’s famous painting. It was an enchanting experience and a perfect way to end our visit to Nuenen.

Our visit was amazing, and I advise everyone to come and experience where Van Gogh was inspired by the beautiful landscape of Brabant. While you’re there, make sure to enjoy the amazing food and welcoming people.
