Full description
Travel to the city of Den Bosch and visit several places related to either the occupation or liberation of The Netherlands during World War II. Hear the stories of the people who had experienced it, as well as the stories of soldiers participating in the liberation of the city. Backed up with photographs, maps and visible traces of that period, you will gain an exclusive insight into what life was like during the occupation between 1940-1945 era.

After some free time for lunch, drive to the Camp Vught National Memorial. Camp Vught holds a special place in Dutch history of World War II, and was the only official SS concentration camp in occupied Northwest Europe. Visit the memorial and museum located in a forest in Vught, and is spread out over several buildings and outdoor areas. See the many watchtowers, which were built a hundred meters apart, which have been reconstructed. Go inside the barracks, which has been rebuilt at half of its original size, to see how the prisoners lived.

Note the Children’s Memorial which lists the names and ages of the 1,269 Jewish children who were deported in June 1943. See crematorium, where the bodies of prisoners who died or were executed at the camp were burned. Then, drive to the execution area, which is located nearby in the woods. A memorial has been erected here, displaying the names of the 329 prisoners who were executed at this site. In the late afternoon, make your way back to Amsterdam, marking the end of your tour.

Finish your day with the choice of two attractions. Enjoy a 5D VR flight experience over the Dutch countryside. Experience breathtaking films providing you with a spectacular perspective from the air and new insights into how the Netherlands was created. Thanks to the astonishing special effects projected on a huge domed screen, you’ll feel like you’re soaring over the must-see sites of the Netherlands.

Or, choose to take a relaxing canal cruise to admire Amsterdam's most famous attractions. The cruise passes all of Amsterdam's most famous attractions and you’ll encounter canal houses from the Golden Age, the Westerkerk, and the Anne Frank House.
