Private Anne Frank Bike Tour in Amsterdam, Netherlands
An ideal cycling tour of Amsterdam for those who enjoy cycling and are active and adventurous: see the real side of Amsterdam and learn about Anne Frank, the young author of a sensational diary that depicted the horrors of World War II. Anne Frank was a well-known diarist who wrote about daily life while hiding with her family in an attic in Amsterdam. A Jewish teenager wrote in her diary about life in hiding during the Nazi persecution. It is currently the most well-known and frequently read account of the Holocaust. Anne is regarded as a representation of the 1 million Jewish children who were killed during the Holocaust. More than 30 million copies of The Diary of a Young Girl have been sold and translated into more than 70 languages. It is essential reading in many schools. Over a million people per year enter the building where she hid.
On this private bike trip, we'll ride down the Amstel River, visiting memorials to the victims of the Holocaust and stopping a few times for more in-depth discussions about WWII. We will reach Anne Frank's family home in the River District after approximately a 4-kilometer bike ride. There are her home, her elementary school, and the bookstore where she purchased her diary. This tranquil area, where your guide will tell you about Anne Frank's life before and during her exile, rounds out the experience. Before returning to the city center, we will go around the area to feel and experience the history. We urge you only to join if you already have bicycle experience, as the roads we take for the bike ride are quieter and less chaotic than the historic city center.
