The Story Of Anne Frank
Learn all about the touching story of Anne Frank through a tour featuring her childhood house, the family’s hiding place (the Anne Frank House) and the Holocaust Memorial.
Anne Frank was a German-born Jewish girl, and is one of the most emblematic victims of the Holocaust, as she acquired posthumous fame with her diary where she documented her life in hiding between 1942 and 1945.
Follow our guide and let him/her take you in the footsteps of Anne Frank and her family. After meeting with your guide and private driver at the hotel, hop into a private, fully equipped mini-van and head out to the house where she grew up. Although the inside of the house cannot be visited, our guide will tell you all about her life as a little girl in Amsterdam at that time, where she went to school and where she would play.
The tour continues with the visit of the Anne Frank House where she and her family hid from the Nazis during World War II. This house is one of the most popular touristic attractions in Amsterdam. The skip-the-line tickets will grant a quicker access to the house (although there will still be a bit of waiting in line for security – 10 to 15mn max), and each member of your family will get an audio guide (guides are not allowed inside the house) perfectly adapted to children aged 10 and up. Your guide will be there with you, but guiding inside the museum is considered rude, so he/she will be there to answer questions and point out the most interesting details.
Once back outside, you will be driven to a special café right next to the zoo. Both these areas have a highly symbolic and historical value in the story of Amsterdam during WWII. Inside the café, you will be able to enjoy a drink while our guide tells you more about the story of Anne Frank and the times she lived in.
The tour ends with the visit of the Holocaust Memorial in Amsterdam (Hollandse Schouwburg), where the Nazis gathered the Jews before putting them on trains to the concentration camps.
