The way of life and the countryside in Brabant form the basis of the works of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). Vincent was born in Brabant, it was here that he grew up, found his inspiration, made his first sketches on paper and created his first masterpiece: The Potato Eaters. The route invites cycling enthusiasts to be inspired by the countryside that was inscribed on Vincent’s heart.
The Van Gogh cycle route is incorporated into the existing cycle route network system. A Van Gogh cycle route sign is attached to every intersection sign.
