What To Expect
As a city of artists, the village of Auvers has 9 Impressionism memory sites which is very typical of its Vallée du Vexin streets and even includes an optional visit to the grave and room of Vincent van-Gogh, the church, the house of Dr. Gachet, the house-workshop of Daubigny, the Absinthe museum, the Daubigny museum and the Château of Auvers which offers a multimedia journey called "Journey to the time of Impressionists".
This journey traces the lives of the great masters who left their mark in the town's history: Daubigny, Pissarro, Cézanne, Monet, Van-Gogh... We journey through the rooms of the
Chateau surrounded by decor and ambiances reminiscent of the Impressionists' themes.
There are more than 500 projections of paintings set to motion, special visual and sound effects, popular music and songs of the time, extracts from old films, photo archive, presentations along with old objects and costumes on display.
The commentaries, which are translated into 9 languages, immerse the listeners for 75 minutes in the ambiance of 19th Century Parisian life.
Then you will discover the French gardens, have lunch at the "Impressionists' café" and visit the village of Auvers-sur-Oise. Then, you will either proceed to the room, the grave and the church of Vincent van-Gogh or choose to explore the chateau on your own.
