What will you visit during your day trip in Auvers sur Oise?
Explore an Impressionist hotspot
The château. Van Gogh may have made Auvers sur Oise famous but it’s also an Impressionist hotspot. Château d’Auvers sur Oise, which is well worth a visit to explore its grounds and nymphaeum, houses the council’s painting collection and an immersive Impressionist Vision experience showing another side to famous artworks.
Thirsty for more?
Auberge Ravoux or House of Van Gogh.
The house was a regular haunt for countless artists and where Van Gogh lived and died on July 27th 1890. You can see the bedroom where the painter laid his famous pieces.
The museum next door to the Auberge celebrates the popular spirit that is now illegal because of its psychoactive effects and is believed to have caused Van Gogh psychological issues.
Soak up the sights and people that inspired so many paintings by Van Gogh and other Impressionist artiss as you wander the streets dotted with boards so you can compare the art to reality. You can also visit the church (painted by Van Gogh) and Dr Gachet’s house (the doctor who looked after the painter during his stay and inspired famous pieces) which are now museums.
