Auvers-sur-Oise and the Impressionists

Throughout its cultural and historical heritage, Auvers-sur-Oise has attracted numerous artists such as Daubigny, Cézanne, Corot, Pissarro and, of course, Van Gogh. Nowadays, Auvers continues to attract visitors with its authentic, bucolic character.

The Castke of Auvers, the Van Gogh House, the Church of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption, the Cemetery, the House of Dr Gachet, the Daubigny Museum, his House-Workshop and the Botin (workshop boat) are all places not to be missed when visiting Auvers-sur-Oise.

Walk in the footsteps of the painters who were inspired by the village, its landscapes, its light, its country atmosphere and its calm, less than an hour from the capital.

On the Impressionists footsteps

Various walks retrace the lives of the painters: the Van Gogh trail, the Daubigny trail and the Impressionists trail. Go along the paths and admire the places that so inspired the artists.

Panels depicting the famous paintings are displayed throughout the village, allowing you to visualize their works painted on the exact same spot.
The small town of Auvers continues to inspire artists and attract visitors from all over the world.

In 2024, a new site has opened to the public: "The Roots mystery", where Van Gogh's last painting was done. The owners open this very special site, which holds the mystery of the painter's last moments.

Artists residences

Charles-François Daubigny was one of the first landscape painters to settle in Auvers. He created a veritable artistic hotbed. His house-workshop bears witness to the creativity of these artists, as its walls have been entirely painted. Astonishing !

The House of Dr Gachet is open to visitors free of charge. Along with the medicinal plant garden, this exhibition space reveals the original personality of its owner, Dr. Gachet, Van Gogh's friend and physician,

Emile Boggio's House-Workshop is now inhabited by his great-grandnephew. Xavier Boggio, an artist himself, keeps a studio in operation and opens the family property to visitors.

Finally, the Auberge Ravoux was home to the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh, who spent the last 70 days of his life here. A moving tour of the room is complemented by a biography and film. A boutique bookshop is dedicated to him, and the dining room, restored to its original glory, continues to welcome guests for lunch.

All these artists' homes have been awarded the prestigious "Maison des Illustres" label.
