Château d’Auvers-sur-Oise Tours

Originally built in 1635, Château d'Auvers-Sur-Oise is the gorgeous castle where Vincent Van Gogh famously spent the last 70 days of life. Consequently, the site now features a fascinating exhibit dedicated to Impressionism and works to immerse visitors in 19th-century Parisian life.
At the time of construction, the château featured a splendid Louis XIII facade, along with lavish Tivoli-inspired gardens with numerous fountains and orangeries. While the façade still exists today, the rest of the castle was significantly renovated in 1662 to make it inherently French and considerably larger, with two new pavilions. Nowadays, the castle is entirely dedicated to impressionists and features exciting highlights, including holograms of household painters like Renoir and Monet, an interpretation center with interactive terminals and even a simulated steam train whizzing through Haussmann-era Paris.
Château d’Auvers-sur-Oise is located in Auvers-sur-Oise, at the very gateway of the Natural Regional Park of French Vexin. It is easily reached from Paris in one hour via A86 and A115, and there is free parking on site. Regular train service runs to Auvers-sur Oise from several stations in Paris, including RER C. Entry cost €14.75 for adults and €10.65 for children between the ages of 6 and 18. The castle is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:30am to 6pm, except between October and March when it closes at 4:30pm.
