My friend and i had a great time, the park has 2 rest-areas where you can order drinks and food, there is a playground and a farm for children and a playground inside an old farm as well. Kids will have a great time:-)
The zoo is not 2 big, we walked about 4 hrs looking at the wild animals. Certainly worth a visit:-)
in the park in the centre is a lovely statue of the painter and it is a nice place to sit for a while after the walk. The statue was erected in 1984 an initiative of the foundation Nuenen-Van Gogh 100 years. The sculptor was Klaas van Rosmalen and he wanted to show Van Gogh as he walked through the town looking for things to paint.
This little centre has a lot of information about the painter and the people in the cetnre are so friendly. Do watch the DVD about the painter and his life in Brabant. It is very interesting. In the centre you can get a leaflet with the description of a walk in it showing places around the town where Vincent van Gogh visited.
This is a wonderfully tranquil and geselig little hamlet outside of Eindhoven. It is home to the oldest tree in Nederland, de Lindeboom, and has a statue in honour of Van Gogh who lived there in the early 1880's. Given my admittedly biased dislike for Eindhoven, I think its the best thing about that city, due to its close proximity! I recommend it to any traveller for its peacefulness.
This church was founded in 1824 and Vincent's father was vicar of the church from August 1882 until March 1885. Vincent sketched and painted it. Vincent was also baptised in the church.
Main Park in Nuenen with it's numerous bars and restaurants. The (catholic) church is located near the park as is a social center with a theater for performing arts.
