A tour in Amsterdam through the eyes of Anne Frank!

This activity will remain open to visitors for the time being, but appropriate measures will be taken.


During the Anne Frank Walking tour a professional guide takes you around Amsterdam and shows you the city  from the perspective of Anne Frank during the second world war. Starting from the Jewish Quarter and ending at the Anne Frank House, this 2 hour tour gives an interesting and in-depth perspective on what Anne Frank and others had to go through during these difficult times. Discover the many hiding places in the city where families like the Franks were forced to seek refuge. Get a sense of what life was like in the Netherlands following the occupation by the Germans in the early 1940s. Hear the story of Anne Frank’s diary and how her father, Otto, ended up publishing it.


Meet your tour guide at Waterloo Square. You will be taken through the city by your guide who will set the scene and make your experience come to life. Passing by historical monuments and buildings still marked by traces of the war, you will truly get a sense of how the city and the people were affected.

Your guide will explain how Dutch people during this time handled the occupation and how Jewish people sought asylum in their homes. You will get a sense of why it was crucial to co-exist with the German occupiers and how Jews like Anne Frank were treated by the general population. Learn about the formative events during the time, such as the February Strike and the Winter of Hunger.

Explore the Jewish Quarter, with its museum, Portuguese synagogue, and the head office of the Jewish counsel. Finally, you will end up at the Anne Frank House where you can visit and explore at your own leisure. This tour is a perfect introduction before diving into the intense realities that are shown at the Anne Frank house.

Compared by the Anne Frank Walking Tour that visits places that played an important role in the lives of the Frank family, I prefer the latter as the guide has a plethora of stories of the wartime in Amsterdam as he grew up in the same neighborhood.
