Amsterdam: Anne Frank Walking Tour in German or English

3. Amsterdam: Anne Frank Walking Tour in German or English

Get to know one of the most important facets of the city and immerse yourself in the World War II history, current affairs and culture of the Jews of Amsterdam with an experienced German or English-speaking guide. The Jews, expelled by the Spanish Inquisition, transformed Amsterdam into one of the wealthiest commercial cities in Europe and thereby influenced the cityscape significantly. This is how the Jodenbuurt was founded with its most well-known part the Jewish Triangle. The tour will take you through this area with interesting stories and illustrate why it was especially this piece of land that the Jews wanted to inhabit. Not only Jews settled here. Non-Jews like the famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn also had their domicile in the middle of the Jewish quarter.  But even in Amsterdam, Jewish history is not just about success and good life. The strong discrimination experienced by the Jews by the Nazi Germans also ended in Amsterdam with the Holocaust during World War II.  Learn about the young and courageous Anne Frank, who was one of the Jews hiding not to get deported. While hiding she wrote her famous diary. Her diary will accompany the tour and exemplify the grief the Jewish community had to undergo. Thousands of people were deported and hardly anyone came back. But not all Amsterdammers wanted to accept this. Learn about the February Strike in 1941, but above all: explore the courageous resistance by Jews and non-Jews, who saved many lives while endangering their own.  Pass by the Portuguese synagogue on the tour and see important testimonies such as Stolpersteine, the gate of the old plague cemetery and monuments commemorating the courageous resistance of the Third Reich and World War II.  Also, discover how the Jewish community lives today in multicultural Amsterdam. Join this tour to explore the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam during World War II and today, while following the moving story of Anne Frank.

As you roam the docklands, alleys and canals of the old east side, I’ll share the stories floating through its streets. You'll hear about the Dutch fleet, once the most powerful in the world, the eternal Anglo-Dutch wars, and how the old Navy Warehouse – now the National Maritime Museum – contributed to one of the worst defeats in the history of the British Navy. Speaking of museums, we’ll pass several that you may like to include in your Amsterdam explorations, including: • NEMO Science Museum, the green building shaped like a ship and built in what once was the arm of the sea that linked Amsterdam to the ocean • Hermitage Amsterdam, which houses a lot of Dutch artwork collected by the Russian Tsars • Rembrandt House Museum, modelled to look as it did in the 1600s • Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam (the Museum of WWII Resistance) where you can learn what life was like for locals during the war On this Amsterdam tour, you’ll also have the chance to: • Discover the rich traditions of Sephardic Jews while visiting the Portuguese Synagogue of Amsterdam, the largest synagogue in the world for centuries • Learn how WWII and the Holocaust almost fully wiped out Amsterdam’s Jewish population • Take in the many memorials around the Jewish District including the National Holocaust Names Monument and the Memorial to Auschwitz Victims • Stroll along Waterlooplein Market, one of the largest and oldest flea markets in the city • See Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam and ARTIS zoo, one of the oldest botanical gardens and zoos in the world • Hear about barges and traditional Dutch sailing ships including the magnificently refurbished East Indiaman Join me on this two-hour walk as we hop over a dozen artificial islands and past more than a dozen museums.

Amsterdam: Private Pedicab Historical Sightseeing Tour

9. Amsterdam: Private Pedicab Historical Sightseeing Tour

You'll start the tour at Dam square, birthplace of the city, the main square and heart of the old centre of Amsterdam. It's the place from where Amsterdam started to evolve and where we find the royal palace, the new church and the national monument. Next stop is Zeedijk, nowadays a street but in the old days one of the dikes protecting the old city. Here you'll see the oldest cafe still standing today with it's original interior and a bit futher down the street get a glimpse of the nearby Chinatown. New Market square, with it's most important building, the 15th century city gate, standing right in the middle of it. This place is full of history and you'll learn all about it. Minutes later there will be a stop at the Montelbaanstoren, an old watch and defense tower, part of the Amsterdam expanded defense line early 16th century. From here there is also a good lookout over the 'oude Waal' where there are a lot of houseboats lined up with 17th century canal houses as background decor. Next will be the jewish quarter where you'll see the very first synagoge that jewish people were allowed to built in Western Europe over 350 years ago, the 'big synagoge'. On the other side of the street you'll see the Portuguese synagoge. Nearby there is the holocaust name monument with 102 thousand bricks giving the names of the dutch jewish victims of the second world war. Just opposite the monument are a row of beautiful old 17th century canalhouses that were inhabited by jewish sefardic immigrants who were succesfull in the diamond business. Then you'll see the Hermitage, a huge old 17th century widowhouse that nowadays houses the hermitage museum. The skinny bridge is one of the most iconic bridges of Amsterdam that beautifully lights up at night when hundreds of light bulbs accentuate it's skinny but stylefull design. From here you have a panoramic over the canalised river the Amstel, which is the main and widest canal in Amsterdam. It's a good place to take pictures! The ride continues thrugh the canal district which is the 17th century neighberhoud surrounding the old centre of Amsterdam. On any city map it can be clearly seen as half circles that go around the centre. Here you find the majority of the typical Amsterdam canal houses that were once the homes of successful merchants. Unlike modern times, all canal houses are slightly different, although we will see there are some typical similarities among them that unveil their building era. The final stop before returning is at Museumsquare which is the biggest and greenest squares of Amsterdam with beautiful scenic views over the surrounding museums. On one side resides the largest museum of the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum, where the bigger Rembrandt paintings are on display, on the other side we will see the Concertgebouw, concert hall for classical music.

The guide was late and for a while we thought perhaps we were in the wrong meeting place but a call to the office confirmed it was just running late. Josh arrived and was excellent - he apologised for his English but quite frankly we thought it was excellent. The tour was paced really well and was really interesting, he interjected extracts from Anne’s diary to add to his knowledge. He also recommended an excellent place to eat near the end of the tour. Would recommend booking the Anne Frank house to accompany this tour.

I stayed 3 hours. It was really interesting and gives a larger picture of the character. I feel like I am more able to get the work now i v seen the context of it.

Our guide Josh was interesting and knowledgeable. He used extracts from Anne Frank’s diary during the tour. It was very moving.

Great canal ride with very pleasant and knowledgable guides!!

The guy driving the boat was lovely and a good laugh
