'Your Loving Vincent’: Van Gogh’s Greatest Letters
Now on  - Jan 10, 2021

Van Gogh not only poured his emotions out onto the canvas, but he also left a collection of letters that chronicled his dreams and disappointments, his friendships, love life, and his battle with illness.

The Van Gogh Museum's latest exhibition showcases the best of the artist's letters displayed alongside his masterpieces, including The Bedroom, The Potato Eaters, and The Sower. His written work often came accompanied with sketches that he was working on or had recently completed, allowing visitors to feel as if they were glancing over the artist's shoulder more than a century after his passing.

Description

Visit Vincent van Gogh's home in Nuenen and see the landscapes that inspired his early work. Then, head back to beautiful Amsterdam and pay a visit to the Van Gogh Museum. Afterwards, opt to take a tranquil cruise along the impossibly pretty canals and contemplate all the beauty you've just packed into one incredible day, or visit THIS IS HOLLAND for a unique 5D flight experience.

Take a road trip from Amsterdam to Nuenen in the south of the Netherlands, and get immersed in the fascinating story of Vincent van Gogh.

Your driver will provide lots of engrossing commentary along the way, so you arrive in Nuenen with Vincent's story freshly painted in your mind. Take a walking tour of the places that inspired over 500 Van Gogh artworks, and get inspired yourself!

With lungs full of fresh southern air, return to the buzzing streets of Amsterdam and walk straight to the entrance of the Van Gogh Museum, where you'll see the largest collection of the artist's works.

Feel like you could use a little more adventure before the day is over? Try flying over the Netherlands in THIS IS HOLLAND's 5D flight simulator, and see the best views of the entire country in one fun ride. If you're looking for something more relaxing, choose to add a calming cruise along Amsterdam's UNESCO-listed canals instead.

The visit was pleasant - especially the guide in the tour. He was an experienced and clever man. In fact it was my last chance to have tickets for the museum during my stay in Amsterdam, but I think it was too expensive. No matter, the advantage was very, very good ;)
