Nuenen Things to Do

  • In Vincent’s footsteps

    During our visit to the Vincentre Museum we bought a booklet with a couple of routes through the open air museum of the Nuenen.

Fourteen of these have been painted by...

  • Van Gogh Statue.

    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.

    by aspierings Updated Jul 31, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visit 'het Klooster' for some excellent theatre, cabaret and music. Some info can be found at this site (in Dutch).
    Inside there's a little bar where you can get a drink. Most of the time there's an exhibition with art from local artists on the 'Rabobank Plein' inside het Klooster. Admission is free, opening times are from monday to friday from 9 am to 11 pm and in the weekends whenever there's some kind of activity planned.

Nuenen What to Pack

    Packing List

    by aspierings Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Just bring some Euros € (We DO have several ATMs but most of them are generally out of order).
    Everything else you need can be bought in Nuenen.
    (Maybe then eventually the City Council can convert their debts into profits)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Always bring an umbrella. You never know?!
    Even when there isn't a cloud in the sky: Birds are everywhere! Especially in the Main Park. I got hit twice in one hour!!
