2. Step into the innermost world of Van Gogh In the attic of the Ravoux Inn, a single skylight lets a few rays of sunshine into the room N° 5 where Vincent lived and died. Out of sheer superstition, this garret referred to as the “suicide room” was never rented out again since 1890. In this well-preserved site, there is nothing to see... but in his empty room, you can relate and bond with the painter’s psyche. To fully take in the experience, you may wish to consider visiting this enclave of silence on a weekday. You will grasp the sentiment of one of our visitors, who thanked us for “transforming the glory of Van Gogh into an intimate experience.”

They show you the room (empty except a chair) where he died and then a short slide show by the Van Gogh Institute. The interesting part is they show a photograph alongside one of his paintings.

Unique experience when you enter the room where Van Gogh spent the last hours of his life. The owner of the place Dominique has and is still doing such a great job to keep Van Gogh alive. Def worth visiting.

The caretakers have done a remarkable job of preserving the building exactly the way it was in his time. The fact that you can go right into his room gives one a much better sense of his life.

Van Gogh lived in the Auberge Ravoux during his last days, and died in a little room in the attic. It is a moving experience to see where he lived and died, not realizing (during his lifetime) his wish to have, one day, his own...More
