Auvers PainterOnce again, a welcomed reader’s comments jiggled my chain for an update. This time about transportation to Auvers-sur-Oise. The Auvers-sur-Oise Tourist Office’s website has a transportation page to keep us all current on how to reach the village by train, bus or car.

Reach Auvers-sur-Oise from Paris using various methods: car, train (30 minute ride), the RER or by bus. A special direct train runs the first Saturday of April to the first Sunday in November.

The painter’s self-guided walk and tourist map, is available online or at the office in the Napoleon III pavilion in the center of the village (38, rue de Gaulle – Van Gogh Park). The office is a couple of minutes walk away from the railway station. The office is open from the first days of April to the first of November.
