IVN Nuenen - Association for nature and environmental education
IVN Nuenen has published several booklets about nature around Nuenen, which are available in the museum store at Van Gogh Village Museum.
A pocket forest such as the Nuenens Broek is located on a very wet soil and is characterized by the strong presence of alders and willows. Today the area is owned by Brabants Landschap. There are hiking trails through the nature.
In the Nuenen Broek there are farm benches. These are inspired by the song 'Hee gaode mee' by Gerard van Maasakkers. On each bench is a large photo of a farming family that is, or was, active in the Nuenen Broek.
You can park at the Lissevoort in Nuenen.
The first walk from Van Gogh National Park passes through Nuenen. Through a landscape with winding paths, flowing streams, with beautiful village views and vistas of the typical Brabant scenery. Here Vincent found inspiration from nature and the ordinary Brabander. This is reflected in his paintings. Vincent longed for this throughout his life.Nuenen Van Gogh National Park hike
