Full description
The story of Anne Frank is known around the world thanks to the touching and harrowing diary she kept of the period that she, her family, and 4 others spent in a hidden annex hiding from Amsterdam’s German occupiers. Less well-known is the story of her life as a young child that moved from Germany to Amsterdam due to her father's fears of Nazi Germany. They arrived in 1934 and settled in a house on the square Merwedeplein. Anne Frank spent many happy moments at this square and its surroundings.

During this walking tour, visit the places that were important to Anne Frank in her childhood. See where she went to school and the shop where she bought her famous diary. Explore the area where she played outside and discover the house where Miep Gies lived for many years, the woman who gave Anne's dairy to Otto Frank.

This tour takes place in the south of Amsterdam, where you will have the opportunity to become acquainted with an area of the city that you would otherwise likely not see. This area was constructed in the 1920-30s and was based on revolutionary ideas of city planning, architecture and social housing. Explore this area and learn about the happier times in young Anne's life, the girl who is a world-wide symbol of strength through adversity.
