Surroundings and activities

Our holiday home is located in Nieuw-Amsterdam, near Emmen.

At 70 meters from our house is the “van Gogh house”. The only publicly accessible home in the Netherlands where Vincent van Gogh lived and worked!

In the surroundings it is also wonderful to walk or go cycling.
