Moeierboom

Reviewed By TravelDaan - Etten-Leur, The Netherlands

Locals call this lime tree 'The Moeierboom' for ages. People say it could be planted in the Golden Age. It is a beautiful poetic landmark in our often transformed village centre. Fun facts: Vincent van Gogh drew this tree (for real!) during his younger years living in Etten-Leur. And did you know there is a very tasteful sweet liqueur named after this tree? It's is locally sold under the name 'Moeierboomke'. If this tree ever dies, we villagers will drink our sorrow away with it.

Menmoerhoeve

Reviewed By Dictus - Zundert, The Netherlands

Nu zijn we voor een lunch op de Menmoerhoeve geweest en daarna op de boerderij wat rond gekeken. Het eten was zondermeer goed, geen hoogstandjes, maar gewoon lekker. De bediening was vlot en vriendelijk. Verder is er een mooi terras en voor de kinderen is er nog een mooie speeltuin en nog een kleine kinderboerderij.

De Santspuy Wijn- en Aspergeboerderij

Reviewed By cliffandjo - England

A great afternoon sipping on the liquers, port and wine. Fabulous soup and sandwiches.
The red is a delightful summer wine most likely best chilled. Very Cote du Rhone.
The whites were almost Alcace.
The people that run the place are charming.
The white asparagus is wipe simply white gold.
Quite rustic but all the more charming for this aspect.
Love love love.

Van Gogh Kerk

Located in the centre of Etten-Leur, the Van Gogh Church offers a fascinating glimpse into what is probably the least known period in Vincent van Gogh’s life, but certainly not the least important! ‘The start of a career’ This is the church where Van Gogh’s father was minister for seven years and where Van Gogh could regularly be found. Vincent van Gogh first registered as an artist in Etten in 1881. For nine months he lived and worked in the parsonage behind the Dutch Reformed Church. He also had his first drawing studio here. ‘Precious memories’ In the Van Gogh Church you can see how Vincent wrestled with drawing but became better at it through sheer hard work. How he was infatuated by his cousin Kee Vos and the drama which then unfolded. How he had arguments with his father. How he left Etten at Christmas 1881 but never forgot it. ‘Around the Van Gogh Church’ All these unusual stories are told in and around the Van Gogh Church. Nine colourful windows, multilingual information panels, showcases, animation, a film, a garden, an oversized portrait wall and audio columns take you back in time. The ‘Van Gogh in virtual reality’ is new: you will be immersed in an almost a real life encounter with Vincent van Gogh through a computer simulated environment. Van Gogh Shop The Van Gogh Shop has a large variety of souvenirs. It is also the ideal starting point for a Van Gogh walk or a cycle trip through the surrounding area. Van Gogh heritage location The Van Gogh Church and Van Gogh Shop (Markt 4) are within walking distance from the bus and railway stations. There is a multi-storey car park very close to the church. The locations are also on the Van Gogh Cycle Route that connects the five heritage locations in Brabant with each other.

Het Oderkerkpark

Reviewed By John821964 - Etten-Leur, The Netherlands

Mooi park in het centrum van Etten-Leur (Anna van Berchemlaan), vlakbij Nieuwe Nobelaer en achter Hotel-Restaurant-Cafe Het Witte Paard. Deze laatste heeft aan de achterzijde van de zaak ook een heerlijk terras aan de rand van het park ingericht.
Heerlijk voor een korte wandeling! In het park bevinden zich meerdere kunstwerken, zoals het Vliegend Paard.
