Van Gogh Drenthe, Nieuw Amsterdam / Veenoord

In the autumn of 1883 Van Gogh spent three months in the northern province of Drenthe. The landscape left a permanent impression on the artist and he made several paintings and sketches in this period. The room where Van Gogh stayed can be visited in the Van Gogh House in Nieuw-Amsterdam/Veenoord. A film takes the visitor back to 1883. Visitors can view Southeast Drenthe from that time through the artist’s eyes.

In the nearby peat moor park visitors can discover the peat moor, the people who lived there and the lives they led, in other words, the things that inspired Van Gogh.
