Walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise

A walk in Auvers-sur-Oise on the tracks of Vincent Van Gogh to discover the places where he lived his last days.

You can get to Auvers-sur-Oise by car or by train. The SNCF (French national railway company) runs non-stop trains to the North Station during the summer months. The visit of the main places of memory of Van Gogh can be done in a few hours, it is necessary to see the church of Auvers-sur-Oise, the tomb of the brothers Van Gogh and the room where he lived his last days. The tour can be done very freely, many reproductions of paintings are scattered throughout the city which makes the walk very interesting.

Small museum on absinthe. Absinthe is an alcoholic drink that was very popular at the time of Van Gogh. This drink was considered responsible for many cases of insanity including that of Van Gogh and was banned in France until 2010.

The physiognomy of the place has changed little since the time of Van Gogh. At the exit of the village you will find the wheat fields immortalized by the artist.
