Travel back in time with us in this private tour to learn about the life of Anne Frank and the Jewish history in Amsterdam. Starting in the 16th century, Amsterdam became the safe place for Jewish families fleeing from Southern and Eastern Europe. We will also get you advise how to get tickets for the Anne Frank House. We hope to meet you in our Private Anne Frank Tour before entering the Anne Frank House on your own pace.
Every day, starting 10am or 2pm (time adjustable according to your schedule)
Our journey starts in the historic Jewish Quarter where in the 16th Century Jews from the Iberian peninsula fled to Amsterdam to avoid persecution. Together, we will explore the rest of the old Jewish Quarter. On our route, we pass:
– The Portuguese Synagogue
– The city’s oldest park
– Our favorite street in Amsterdam
– The Dutch theater – the last stop in Amsterdam for the Holocaust victims
– Monuments created by the community
You’ll also discover several hidden gems along the canals, all the while telling stories that will make history feel within arm’s reach. After a refreshing beer or cup of coffee in our favorite restaurant, we will take a tram to the city center.
After a short stroll we end at the Westerkerk, the building Anne could see from the loft’s window. We will see the famous church before our final destination – the Anne Frank House. (Tickets Anne Frank House are not included).
Due to the Corona Virus the Anne Frank House is closed until June 1st 2020. After that time, the number of tickets to be obtained will be very small, due to the new corona rules. We can advise you how to get tickets for your Anne Frank House Tour.
If you book this tour we will also give you the best advice how to get tickets to get inside the house. Even when they are sold out already. With this advice almost all our guests still managed to get inside the house and museum.
The secret annex is the place where the Franks clung to hope of survival in a tumultuous time. While celebrating the life of Amsterdam’s most famous Jewish resident, you’ll learn about how one little girl’s diary came to affect the lives of millions. We will show the old entrance and the Anne Frank House from the outside. Rather than a somber story of loss and sorrow, our tour’s theme is tolerance and hope, because, as Anne wrote; “Don’t think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.”
