It was a memorable visit. The guide gave us the history and background of the house. We were shown where the people were hiding and we were all surprised that as many as 8 people were hiding in such a small area. We were inspired...More

If you are in Haarlem, you must see the Corrie Ten Boom house. Wonderful one hour tour, just pick your language AND get your tickets ahead of time. The Halocaust from the Christian perspective, very eye opening.
