Travel back to the dark days of World War II on a 2-hour walking tour of Amsterdam, and learn what life was like following the occupation of the Netherlands by the Germans in 1940-1945 and how Anne Frank became an icon of the brutality of suppression. Hear the story about her diary and how it came to be published by her father Otto Frank.

Meet your guide in front of the entrance of the Jewish Historical Museum, 15 minutes before the designated starting time of your tour. Stroll past monuments and buildings still marked by traces of war. Your guide will bring the history to life, giving you a sense of how the city’s citizens behaved during the occupation, and how they moved around in times of horror.

Learn why the Dutch tried to co-exist with the occupying army, and how the Dutch behaved towards the Jews of Amsterdam like Anne Frank. Hear about important events, such as the February Strike and Winter of Hunger.

Visit the Jewish neighborhood, and hear all about the Portuguese synagogue and Jewish Museum, the head office of the Jewish counsel, the dokwerker and the Auschwitz Monument. Discover locations the Dutch resistance offered as secret hiding places to families like the Franks. The tour ends next to the Anne Frank House, however: admission to Anne Frank’s House is not included.

Ideal for fans of European history, the tour also gives an insight into how the Jewish community lived, survived and still thrive in Amsterdam.

Tour guide Arthur was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He had pictures on his iPad with him to show the group at each stop. Tour covered a large part of the city. He brought the history of that time period alive in a most interesting way. Highly recommend this tour.

The lady that gave the tour was wonderful - her name started with an "M", and she mentioned Monica, but that was not her name, but close, but of course now all I remember! Very good at this, and could answer all our questions.

My husband and I did this tour. The guide was way beyond knowledgeable! He was able to provide back-story due to his family's acquaintance with the Frank's, and he did so with warmth and humor. He was also very attuned to the needs of each member of the group.
