Anne Frank was a young girl who kept a diary while she and her family hid from the Nazi occupiers in Amsterdam. With more than 30 million copies sold, the journal is now known to be one of the most read books ever written. The Anne Frank Story & Neighbourhood Walking Tour will provide a greater insight than what most people know about Anne Frank. Learn more about the life she led before her time in hiding and how she has been portrayed as an icon over the years.
During this guided walking tour, you will visit locations important to Anne Frank during her childhood. See where she went to school and the bookshop where Anne bought her famous diary. Explore the area where she played outside and discover the house where Otto Frank’s secretary and most important helper, Miep Gies, lived for many years. She was the one who handed the diary over to Otto Frank after the war. Miep Gies also saved many of the family’s personal belongings after the Nazi’s raided the house.
Otto Frank was reluctant to publish the journal at first, however when he read it was his daughter’s wish to publish her story, he allowed to publish the journal in June 1947.
This tour does not include a visit to the Anne Frank House. It takes place in the south of Amsterdam, where you have the opportunity to see an area less familiar for tourists.
