Excellent guide, lots of information that really brought the books to life. This was good for me as I had thoroughly researched before hand but also for my husband who know almost nothing! Worth visiting just to get an appreciation of how small the hiding...More

We had an excellent guide who spent 20 minutes telling the story before we toured the house. The Hiding place is incredibly small!

We took our son and his fiancé here as I remember my mother reading this book when I was longer and wanted to see where it all happened. Worth a visit.

Great tour and marvel at her Corrie's boldness to tell the good news. A must visit for everyone! The guide was able to tell her story with images in the house.

We found this the most moving part of our trip. This ordinary Christian family, the Ten Boom watchmaking business, helped to save the lives of 800 Jews at the risk to their own. You can see the house very little changed and the secret room....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How long does the tour last? For a person who wants plenty of time to soak it all in an has read and reread Corrie's books, is 2-3 hours enough time? What time do things open in Haarlem? Is it possible to arrive in the city by 8:30 and see a few things prior to a 10am tour, or do things not open until later? This is a highlight for us and we want to give it plenty of time, but also need to get to move on to the next train leg of our trip. Trying to book train tickets that give us time in the next area, but enough time in Haarlem.

April 4, 2017 1.Will the house be open on King's Day holiday 4/27/17 this year? 2. Will we be able to catch a train there going from and returning to Central Station that Thursday? I understand the routing is different for the holiday. 3. Any reservations to tour the house still available for King's Day with an English language guide? Thank you!
