Amsterdam Historic Walking Tour



Description:

Amsterdam has a very compact city center, one which grew out from Dam Square and Centraal Station. Centraal Station has always been the site of the entrance to the city (first as a major port, now a train station built on four man made islands).

This three hour walking tour will take you past some of Amsterdam's most important historic sites – from Medieval walls to the houses of important historical figures. It focuses on the historic city center, so you will start your tour at Centraal Station and end at the Anne Frankhuis (a 15 minute walk from the station). If you chose to enter any of the houses, budget 2 hours each for ticket sales and visit.
