Attention please!

The Van Gogh Church Etten-Leur and the Etten-Leur City Shop (Tourist Information) are closed until 6 April due to coronavirus concerns.

As all major events in Brabant have been cancelled for this weekend, the Vincent van Gogh Foundation in Etten-Leur has taken the decision to remain closed from Wednesday 11 March until 6 April.
This will put the safety of our visitors, but also of our own volunteers, first.
We look forward to welcoming you later.

Van Gogh Church

Etten-Leur is the town where the wordfamous Vincent van Gogh started his career. This is where the 28 years old Vincent made the final decision to become an artist. Etten-Leur counts five official Van Gogh Monuments! The full story is told in the former Dutch Reformed Church where Vincent's father was a vicar for seven years. The Van Gogh family lived in Etten for seven years. In the colourful Van Gogh Church, you can see and hear how Vincent laid the foundations for his later masterpieces.

A visit to Etten-Leur begins with a visit to the Van Gogh Church, the place where Van Gogh's father was pastor for seven years. His pulpit is still there. So is the organ! Vincent regularly visited this church, where a permanent - colourful - exhibition about the beginning of his career can now be admired.

Tickets: simple and fast

Een unieke locatie

In de kleurrijke kerk - de plek waar Vincents vader 7 jaar op de preekstoel stond - zie je een presentatie over Van Goghs periode in Etten. Het is ook de plek waar de gemeenteraad vergadert en een officiele trouwlocatie. Bovendien worden hier regelmatig tentoonstellingen, lezingen en orgelconcerten gehouden op het ruim 300 jaar oude Jacobus Zeemansorgel. In 2018 was de kerk het podium voor Salon Van Gogh.
