12-day trip in the Netherlands | Belgium | France – with your car or (a rented car)

Despite hardly selling any paintings during his lifetime, Vincent van Gogh became one of the most famous Dutch painters of all time. Vincent tried his hand at many jobs: he was the youngest clerk at an art dealer, a teacher, bookseller and lay preacher. He only decided to become an artist at the age of 27: a decision that would change the course of art history.

This unmissable 12-day art trip plunges you into Van Gogh’s fascinating life. From his birthplace in Brabant to the Borinage mining region in Belgium, and from the art scene in Montmartre in Paris to the psychiatric clinic in the Provence: during this unique trip, you will see it all! The trip ends at the cemetery in Auvers, the final resting place of Vincent and Theo. A fitting end to a remarkable Van Gogh trip.

Art trip includes:

  • Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
  • Museum Vincentre in Nuenen
  • Van Gogh’s birthplace in Zundert
  • Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Saint-Paul-de-Mausole
  • Arles, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and Montmajour
  • Auberge Ravoux and Vincent and Theo’s graves in Auvers-sur-Oise
  • Paris with Montmartre and Musée d’Orsay
