The Van Gogh House in Nieuw Amsterdam / Veenoord is the only publicly accessible building in the Netherlands where one of the most famous painters in the world, Vincent van Gogh, lived and worked.
In 1883, Vincent lived and worked at the inn for two months and it is the base for his explorations through the peat area.
The aim was to paint 'ordinary' people, especially the agricultural worker. In the Van Gogh House you are in the room where Vincent van Gogh stayed in 1883.
His bed is still in the same place, the drawing box is open and the paint palette is ready for use. Maybe Van Gogh is taking a long walk through the peat, it seems as if he could come back at any moment ...
