Full description
Find out more about Anne Frank on a small-group guided walking tour of Amsterdam, led by an expert guide. Discover the city’s centuries-old Jewish Quarter in a small group setting while your guide weaves in anecdotes about Anne Frank's life.

You will hear all about Anne Frank’s family dynamics, their move from Germany, their time in hiding and her father’s life after the war.

Start the tour outside the Portuguese Synagogue, a 17th-century Sephardic construction that still functions as a synagogue today. Find out about the background of the original Jewish neighborhood and how it developed over the centuries.

Your guide will share stories of Anne Frank’s love of writing, the conditions she lived through in 1930s and 1940s Amsterdam, and how her diary became so famous. You will also hear about the Dutch Resistance during the Second World War and see where secret hiding places were located.

Have a break in the middle of the tour before continuing to see other significant sites. Over the course of the tour you will see the Jewish Historical Museum, Auschwitz Monument and, finally, Anne Frank’s house, where the tour will end.
