What to expect

During this walking tour you’ll be taken back 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 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 and hidden annex hiding from Amsterdam’s German occupiers. The part of her life in hiding is very well known, but her life as a young kid that moved from Germany to Amsterdam is less known. Her father feared Nazi Germany and took his family to Amsterdam, where he hoped they would be safe from Hitler. The family settled in a house on the square Merwedeplein where Anne Frank spent happy moments.

The 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 1920-1930 and was based on revolutionary ideas of city planning, architecture and social housing.
