The Anne Frank Tour

See Amsterdam Through Anne’s Eyes

Explore Amsterdam through the eyes of Anne Frank and enter the secret annex of the Anne Frank Huis. On this Anne Frank walking tour, visit the original bookstore where father Otto Frank bought Anne her famous red plaid diary, walk by the house where she grew up, see where she went to school, follow her footsteps from a young German Jewish immigrant to a Dutch adolescent in hiding, and end outside the Anne Frank Huis (get your Anne Frank Huis tickets online here) for your own self-guided visit.

NOTE: Anne Frank Huis tickets sell out fast. Once sold out, visitors have to queue outside for sometimes 90 minutes or more in high season (March-September). Book your tickets on your own now by clicking here.

Get to know Anne and understand the Frank family’s way of life in 1930s Amsterdam, nicknamed Little Jerusalem. This is an insider’s guide to Anne’s world through the sights meaningful to her and to the readers of the diary she kept while in hiding, plus tales from family and friends, photos, exploring lesser-known neighbourhoods of Amsterdam as well as the historical centre where the family hid from the Nazis until they were mysteriously betrayed.

Area: We explore the Rivierenbuurt of Amsterdam, south of the city centre. We then work our way north into the city centre via sights related to Jewish culture and heritage. This tour contains gentle walking, stopping for storytelling, and using the tram when needed.
