The Jewish History & Anne Frank Private Tour
Travel back in time with us to the 16th century when Amsterdam became the safe place for Jewish families fleeing from Southern and Eastern Europe. Learn about the Jewish History and Anne Frank in this private tour.
Where are we going?
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).
The secret annex where Anne Frank lived
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.
If you book this tour we will also give you the best advice how to get tickets to get inside even when they are sold out already.
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.”
We recommend to read the Diary of Anne before joining the tour. It gives an extra dimension during our experience.
