Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois), Arles
(3.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Captured beautifully in a series of oil paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) was a drawbridge at Arles in France. It was one among the eleven drawbridges built by a Dutch engineer along the channel from Arles to Port-de-Bouc. That is why is assumed that perhaps it served as van Gogh’s inspiration, as it reminded him of his hometown. The channel is located on the Mediterranean Sea. "Pont de Réginelle”, better known by the keeper's name as "Pont de Langlois" was built to manage the traffic on road and flow in water. A replica of the Langlois Bridge, named Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) (Van Gogh bridge), was made to honor the works that Van Gogh made of the bridge. The replica is now owned by the Arles tourist board. Put Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) into our Arles vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Arles.

  • Unfortunately poorly signposted but the search worthwhile. With matching weather an experience. Usually one is there alone and can enjoy.

  • Stumbled on this while seeking somewhere to picnic, saw a signpost then realised what it was. It is not the actual bridge in the painting but a reasonable copy in the same, very unprepossessing rural ...  more »

  • Finally :-) so happy to be here and see it (and its for free)
  • Nice historical experience. Relocation and replication of the original bridge.
  • The people of Arles don't groom the bridge enough. And the way is very difficult to find.
  • walking a long way but lije it... following van gogh footprints
  • The place is good, but it's neither right, nor is it the original bridge. She has been replaced in their original position namely in 1930 by a concrete bridge. Here was existing before somewhere else is the only one of its kind, which has survived the withdrawal of German troops in 1944. Only, that will not tell us on the spot. ;-) But the atmosphere despite the illusion has charm...
