The Jewish History & Anne Frank Private Tour
Before going to Anne Frank’s hiding place, come with us on a walk through time that will place Amsterdam’s Jewish history into a greater context and honor those who once dwelled here.
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, 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.
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.
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.
