The Van Gogh house in Nieuw Amsterdam (in the municipality of Emmen) is the only house in the Netherlands where Vincent van Gogh has lived and worked, which can be visited. At the end of 1883 he lived two months in the logement of Hendrik Scholte in Nieuw-Amsterdam/Veenoord. A part of this logement is rebuilt in the authentic style of a caf?-restaurant anno 1880.
