Where to go
Situated in the municipalities of Gerwen and Nederwettenof, Nuenen is famous as the location where Vincent van Gogh lived and worked from 1883 to 1885. In 1944, the town was a battle scene during Operation Market Garden.
Inspired by the landscapes and the simple life of people living here, at the age of 30, Vincent van Gogh moved back in with his parents in Nuenen. For two years van Gogh worked entirely on his paintings creating over 25% of his total works, including the “Potato Eaters”.
