Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Not an attractive area. Not "well-groomed." Never the less, there is a spiritual aura as you view the bridge. When we were there about a half dozen other people came and went. Conversation was minimal...  read more »
  • It was a round 17 euro taxi from Arles Centre. I took from the taxi taxi came and press the button. I went alone, but in the driver's cab waiting, I took many pictures. It was a splendid restored drawbridge.

  • walking a long way but lije it... following van gogh footprints
  • The people of Arles don't groom the bridge enough. And the way is very difficult to find.
  • passing through Arles, to do the detour! ca is worth the look, very nice framework before the Rhône.

  • 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...

  • Van Gogh in Arles tour is one of the most nice places. The surrounding environment is itself a picture and makes the place. Nice place for a stroll. Gogh figure of vivid green in 1888. Only a part of the next stone axes more dog Taoist-based laundry was a place to get some. Next to the House at that time, too. Oh, when you go from downtown cab ride when you come for a walk and walk way Sanya River walks. If time permits ᆢ
