Historical Walking Tour Amsterdam

Total overview of more than 800 years of Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s beautiful inner city is basically one big open-air museum and therefore perfect to discover by foot. On this 2-hour tour, we cover the total history of Amsterdam with all its highlights, like the UNESCO Canal Belt, the Red Light District, and the history of the Jewish Quarter!

You feel the history as you walk in the same streets as people did for 800th. We start at the dam square where it all started. From there we take you to a time travel along with the 80-year war, 17 century (golden age) to World War Two, and finally the radical hippies in the 70th and till today.

Great stories from Dutch guides, learn not only about Amsterdam but also about Dutch history and its culture.
