Cycle through a painting

The Van Gogh route invites you to be inspired by the Brabant countryside that was close to Vincent’s heart, and will let you experience for yourself the places that played an unusual part in his life. It’s so beautiful - it’s as if you are cycling through a painting!

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was born in Brabant. It was here that he grew up, found his inspiration, made his first sketches and created his first masterpiece: The Potato Eaters. The Van Gogh cycle route invites you to be inspired by the heritage locations, Van Gogh Monuments and the countryside that was inscribed on Vincent’s heart. The entire Van Gogh route is 435km in length and winds its way through the whole of Brabant. But you can also cycle along shorter routes.

The Van Gogh Cycle Route in Brabant – nominated as the European Cycle Route of the year in 2016 – has been made even more attractive!

The Van Gogh Cycle Route is laid out in the convenient and recognisable cycle path network system.
