Guided tours in the Van Gogh House Drenthe

During your visit to the Van Gogh House, you will be given a personal guided tour. You will visit the room where Vincent van Gogh stayed in 1883. The planks under your feet are the same planks that the famous painter stood and walked on. It almost feels like Van Gogh has just stepped out to go on a long walk on the moors and could be back at any moment...

You will see a film in which Vincent van Gogh describes his experiences in Drenthe.  The film will take you back to 1883. You will see South-east Drenthe as it was in that time through the eyes of Vincent van Gogh.

The most frequently-heard reaction after the guided tour

“In Nieuw-Amsterdam, you can experience Van Gogh - in Amsterdam, you can see Van Gogh”
