DESCRIPTION

During this 2-hour bicycle tour of Amsterdam’s Rivierenbuurt (“River District”), you will not only visit the district where Anne Frank grew up, but also the primary school she attended. You will experience a pleasant bike ride along the Amstel River where you will enjoy its beautiful views. Your professional guide from 360 Amsterdam will make several stops to tell you all about Anne Frank’s life and her time before her family went into hiding in July 1942 because of the German occupation.

Places to see

In this 2 hour tour you will learn about Anne Frank’s story and see the house she grew up in, the school she attended and the bookstore where Anne’s father, Otto Frank, bought the diary where Anne began her writing journey. You will experience Amsterdam in the most typical local way: by bicycle! The bike ride along the Amstel River is the most beautiful route of them all.

 

Bicycles

City bikes are easy to use, have no less than 7-speed and can be adjusted to your height. The paths used for the ride are flatter, quieter and less chaotic than those in the historic city centre. However, we advise you to participate only if you already have experience with the bicycle.

ROUTE

At the beginning of the bicycle tour we will follow the Amstel River, passing through Holocaust memorials and making multiple stops for more in-depth stories about World War II. After a bike ride of about 4 km, we will arrive at the Rivierenbuurt, where Anne Frank grew up. Your expert guide will make a stop on Merwedeplein to vividly narrate Anne Frank’s story (her life before and during hiding). Afterwards, we will explore the neighbourhood to get a sense of the history before returning to the city centre.

Recommended: The tour is a perfect choice for history lovers who wish to learn more about Anne Frank in an educational and entertaining way while accompanied by a professional guide.
