Create an itinerary including The Corrie ten Boom House
Though the site of a tragic betrayal, The Corrie ten Boom House represents a story of hope and a family who ultimately sacrificed their own safety to help persecuted Jews and others during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Visit the classic Dutch-style house, restored to appear as it did during its time as a watch shop in the 1940s, when the Ten Boom family used their residence to protect refugees and shelter those in hiding. Join a guided tour to learn about the family's efforts and see their personal items, such as photographs, as well as the secret closet itself. Be sure to book your entry ahead of time, as reservations are limited and fill up quickly.

  • The ten Boom family saved the lives of many jews and the tour (you must sign up in advance and the tour is free) shows how this was the "Hiding Place" for many of jews escaping the Nazis.

  • I have always loved the Corrie Ten Boom story and how Jesus worked through her and her family to help the Jews. I loved the tour! And so did my mom. We came all the way from the United States just to see this. The guide was wonderful. We wished it could have been longer - an hour didn’t even seem like enough time. ❤️
  • It’s so worth it!! The English tour guide was amazing, he was very entertaining and also very true to the story and the family’s Christian faith. Definitely recommend!
