About this tour
The city of Amsterdam is one of the most liberal and tolerant cities in Europe, where freedom of worship is a unique characteristic that is widely accepted by its inhabitants. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Amsterdam became the Mokum (meaning “safe place” in Yiddish) of the Jewish community. Discover Amsterdam’s WWII history and follow in the footsteps of Anne Frank on this walking tour of the Jewish Quarter. This private guided tour of the Jewish Quarter highlights the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg Museum and the central office of the Jewish Council.
Discover the hiding places that the Dutch resistance provided to Jewish families like Anne Frank’s family. Your guide will share stories of Anne Frank’s love of writing, the conditions she lived through in the 1930s and 1940s Amsterdam, and how her diary became so famous. Walk through monuments and buildings still marked by the traces of war. Since it is a private tour it is a very personal experience, it will feel like you are doing the tour with a friend.
