Once 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.
The tourist office’s Discovery (Découvrir) page provides information on monuments, museums, art gallery, applications, a self-guided walk and the one and a half hour Impressionist Cruise that runs between May and October. The Auvers sur Oise site has a city map showing where to eat, sleep and locate the tourist office.
