The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path was opened at Eindhoven on 12 November.
The opening of this unique cycle path marks the start of the Van Gogh 2015 international theme year. The cycle path is inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s work and it combines innovation and design with cultural heritage and tourism. The Van Gogh – Roosegaarde cycle path was constructed by Heijmans from a design by Daan Roosegaarde and forms part of the Van Gogh cycle route in Brabant.
After dark visitors are amazed by a design of light and colour, inspired by the world-famous painting The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. Together with the artist Daan Roosegaarde, Heijmans developed special innovative technology with which the path is illuminated by thousands of twinkling stones. This creates a play on light and poetry.
