To be honest, I enjoyed this more than the Anne Frank house in many ways. It’s more interactive, and you can even physically go in to the place where the family hid Jewish people. The tour only takes an hour. It’s free, but be sure...More

It’s an interesting and inspiring story, but the tour is too long. There was also a lot of religious talk during our tour, which didn’t seem necessary and might turn some people off. It’s cool to see the hiding place and wonder where one could...More

During World War II, Corrie ten Boom and others in her family were among several people in Holland who risked their own lives to protect Jews, most of whom they didn't know at all. This tour provides a vivid account of the challenges they faced...More

Most who visit this house are already aware of the background story. Therefore we (a friend & I) found the story teller was too long winded. The house being small, the group was a bit on the large side for easy movement from room to...More

This was a must see for us. Other reviewers stress the importance of getting there early because only 20 people can be admitted because of the small size of the house and the rooms. And people with reservations are given priority. Thankfully, we were first...More

The life story of Corrie Ten Boom is touching and inspiring. The house is located off a narrow street near the Grote Market and is a must visit if you are in Haarlem. Admission is free (donations are encouraged). The volunteers who give the tour...More

We queued up at the entrance around 30-45 minutes before the slot as no pre-booking was allowed for the English session and it was more than worth it. The whole experience felt authentic and real, and our guide explained everything clearly and thoroughly. The story...More

The best way to get from Amsterdam to Haarlem is by train. Not to expensive, not to far and a really enjoyable trip if you like public transportation. You could always rent a car but I never do because I don't want to hassle... More
