What You Can Expect

Jewish Quarter Anne Frank Walking Tour in Amsterdam

Franks family

Meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people in central Amsterdam in time for a 2pm departure. Set out to explore the city’s historic Jewish Quarter on foot, stopping to admire landmarks such as the Jewish Historical Museum and the Portuguese Synagogue.

Along the way, learn more about Amsterdam’s troubled past, as you hear about the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands between 1940 and 1945, and the effects of the brutal regime not only on the Jewish community but on the everyday lives of all those living in Amsterdam. See the head office of the Jewish counsel and hear about key events such as the Winter of Hunger and the February Strike as you pass monuments like the Dokwerker and the Auschwitz Monument.

You’ll also learn more about the Dutch resistance and how they offered secret hiding places to families like the Franks. Your tour ends outside the Anne Frank House, where you’ll learn more about her now-legendary diaries and how they came to be published by her father Otto Frank. Entrance to the museum is not included, but you can opt to visit independently after the tour.

Marjoke was an excellent guide and very passionate about her subject. She give us a thorough background of the events leading up to Anne Franks' family going into hiding and the aftermath. Besides showing us all the sights, she even brought pictures of all the players so that we could put faces to names. Enjoyed the tour very much.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide Arthur was outstanding. Informative and very funny delivery of his presentation. We learned and saw a lot throughout the tour. And, fortunately we had gone online before to order tickets to tour the Anne Frank House afterwards. That is a must!

Josje was a great tour guide. She was so patient and understanding on a rainy day in Amsterdam, taking time to make sure all of the group stayed with her and seeking out semi-dry places so that she could describe the locations along the walk. The tour featured the history of the Jewish community in Amsterdam primarily before and during WWII. It was very moving that Josje is the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors an her stories of that era was very striking. The tour ended at the Anne Frank House a tour of which must be booked separately and at least 2 months in advance when the tickets go on sale.

Josje was a wonderful tour guide. She was knowledgeable and engaging. The tour included some history of the Jewish community in Amsterdam, but focused primarily on the tragic events of the Holocaust. Tour of the Anne Frank House must be booked separately with that organization. We also recommend visiting the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam, which is not part of this tour.

Our walking tour guide, Selina, was absolutely first-rate. If you get her, consider yourself fortunate. She is most knowledgeable and eager to share her stories, and listen to ours. We booked tickets for 7 adults. There were 2 others on the tour...a perfect size

On our route, Selina pointed out stumbling stones, which marked the homes where Jewish holocaust victims were removed from their homes by the Nazis, and sent to concentration camps. I have attached a couple of images.

Our guide was excellent - informative and interesting. We learned a great deal about Anne Frank and her family, as well as the plight of the Jewish people in Amsterdam during WW2. We highly recommend this tour.
