Learn about the Jewish History & Anne Frank in this Private Tour
Travel back in time with us in this private tour to learn about the life of Anne Frank and the Jewish history of 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 advice how to get tickets for the Anne Frank House. We hope to meet you on our Private Anne Frank Tour before entering the Anne Frank House at your own pace.
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 theatre – the last stop in Amsterdam for the Holocaust victims
– Monuments created by the Jewish community (National Holocaust Memorial and Name memorial)
You’ll also discover several hidden gems along the canals, as our guide shares stories that will make history feel within arm’s reach. After a refreshing beer or cup of coffee in our favourite restaurant, we can walk or take a tram to the city centre.
After a short stroll we end at the Westerkerk, the building Anne could see from the attic window. We will see the famous church before our final destination the Anne Frank House.

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.
Rather than a somber story of loss and sorrow, our tours theme is tolerance and hope, because, as Anne wrote;
Don’t think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains. (Anne Frank)

Anne Frank and the Jewish History of Amsterdam Tour
Had an amazing walking tour of the Jewish section of Amsterdam ending at the Anne Frank House. I highly recommend it! Learned so much and cried my eyeballs out, but so worth it. I will be forever changed. Thanks, Stephan and Amsterdam Experiences!!
