    Only 15 min by car from Eindhoven, parking only 3,50.
    Entrance adults: 15,50 euro
    children: 13,95 (3-11years)
    When you pay at the entrance they give you a plastic coin which you need to get out of da parking.
    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:-)

    Vincent van Gogh

    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.

    The Van Gogh documentation centre

    by margaretvn Written Apr 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • Statue of Van Gogh and de Lindeboom

    by Wallace&Murron Updated May 15, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
