Walk in the footsteps of Anne Frank on this 2-hour private tour of the area where she spent her childhood from the moment she moved to Amsterdam until she went into hiding. Hear the story about her diary and how it came to be published.
What to Expect
The story of Anne Frank is known around the world because of her diary describing the period that she, her family, and 4 others spent in a secret annex hidden from Amsterdam’s German occupiers.
On this 2-hour private tour you’ll learn how the diary was handed by Miep Gies to Otto Frank after the war. She had saved a number of the family’s personal belongings after the Germans raided the house.
Otto Frank was reluctant to publish the diary, but when he read in the diary that it was his daughter’s wish to have it published, he allowed the book to become public in June 1947.
Your guide will show you the places where Anne Frank spent her happy childhood in Amsterdam and will provide commentary on the facts and fiction about her.
The tour takes place in the south of Amsterdam, where you’ll have the opportunity to become acquainted with an area of the city that you would otherwise likely not see.
