My name is Hans Keijzer. I’m managing the bookings and I am one of the Airbnb guides in Nuenen, together with Gofie van der Linden and Nigel Saych. The three of us are real art lovers and especially interested in Vincent van Gogh who was born and raised in North Brabant and who painted "The Potato Eaters" in Nuenen. Our passion is to show you around Van Gogh Village Nuenen and all the special and hidden locations. There are many of them and we will show them to you with some fascinating stories. Nuenen is like an open air museum. You will never get closer to Vincent van Gogh!
