For Secondary/High schools
If you are taking part in a themed week or an art or history project, you should think immediately of Vincent van Gogh, the most famous 19th century Dutch artist. Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Nuenen for two years. Using audiovisual aids you will hear, see and feel a compelling story about Vincent van Gogh. We have produced a special information booklet for schools, 'In the footsteps of Vincent van Gogh' which you can use to walk or cycle around the Van Gogh Village Nuenen. You can use this on your own or with your class as a start to your cultural project.

A visit to the Vincentre is interesting if you have international guests: the audiovisual tour is available in 8 languages! Students from other countries can also read and listen to the outdoor information columns with text and audio clips in English.
