Inspirational place which was the main reason for my visit to Haarlem. Unmissable

Brings to life the story of the Ten Boom family's bravery and those they helped during the nazi occupation.

My husband and I visited the Corrie Ten Boom house last week and we enjoyed our visit very much. Our hostess/tour guide did an excellent job of sharing the stories of the Boom family. It was eerie to stand in the hiding place behind the wall and to imagine being in there with six people for two and a half... More

As an alternative to the well known Anne Frank House, this inauspicious home in residential Haarlem was the site where the ten Boom family hid Jewish neigbors until they were discovered and executed. The presentation has a no holds barred evangelical Christian message. So, don't be surprised. It is what motivated the family. And, whether you agree with that philosophy... More

Excellent tour, whilst there is no charge for the attraction, donations are accepted. All the tour guides are volunteers, so any financial contributions are a great help. The story of the Ten Boom family is very inspiring and has made us want to know more about their life and what it was like living in Holland during that time. We... More

Growing up I always loved reading about the bravery and courage of the Ten Boom family so I thoroughly enjoyed being able to visit the watchmaker's house. The guide was really informative and was able to bring out the good news .I would recommend this trip to any one (but possibly not young children) as an interesting insight into what... More

This tour was fantastic! The guide was extremely knowledgable and hospitable. I love the story of Corrie ten Boom & her family and this tour was a highlight of our Netherlands trip! The tour itself is free, but you can reserve a spot by emailing them & they ask for a 2 EUR donation to do so. I recommend reserving... More

We did not reserved ahead and showed up at the first English showing at 10 am on a Wednesday. It was full with reservations so we went to see the church and came back at 11:15 am for the 11:30 showing. We were the first people in line and got in. So if you don't have reservations make sure your... More

Here's an insight into one life made a difference in a small house in Haarlem. You need to arrive early; only 20 people can fit in the house for a tour; we got on the list for the next tour and went for a walk. Tour guides are very nice and know all about Corrie and her family--well worth an... More

It's easy to miss the small innocuous entrance door that only opens during the set tour times. Only a few are allowed through in each guided tour. Some are in English. It was like stepping back in time. The house appears much as it was during the war. You can actually step into the "hiding place" and crawl through the... More
