What to expect
Go back to the dark days of World War II on an approximately two-hour walking tour through Amsterdam's Jewish quarter. On this experience you will learn about the story of Anne Frank and how the Nazi invasion affected the Netherlands from a professional local guide.
The Jodenbuurt, the Anne Frank House, the Jordaan or the Amsterdam Jewish Historical Museum are some of the places you will pass by while your guide will immerse you in anecdotes and events about the Holocaust and the Jewish history of the city. This tour will be conducted in small groups of around 15 travellers, so you will enjoy more personalised attention.
Jodenbuurt is the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam where you will learn about the hard life of the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation and have the opportunity to pass by points of interest such as the Portuguese Synagogue, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Auschwitz Memorial. This district is full of emblematic buildings dedicated to honouring Jews, remnants of the war and secret hiding places offered by the Dutch Resistance.
The story of Anne Frank is the most interesting and has had the greatest impact to this day. It is one of the most characteristic examples of Nazi rule and the horrors it caused. The Frank family, German and Jewish, was one of the many families who suffered persecution by the Germans and decided to go into exile in Amsterdam. They hid in a residence located in the Jordaan district, which today is the well-known Anne Frank House, converted into a museum.
You will learn about the events experienced by Anne, thanks to her diary, while she was hiding from the Nazis and whose story has shocked the whole world so much.
