Very interesting guide informed you of the history of the property and its inhabitants seated in the lounge as the property is very small and restricts numbers. The tenacity and forgiveness of the owners to their treatment is just one of many heroic acts of years gone by. Worth making a reservation to ensure you get in, or else you... More

What an amazing, moving story of the Ten Boom family. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend visiting there.

I make a reservation via email for 11.30 English tour. Small house, so make sense to reserve ahead. Donation E 2.5 per person (put into jar). Excellent presentation by docent volunteer, putting human story to Nazi occupation and strengthening my faith in God and the kindness of people. A perfect complement to my visit to Anne Frank house (as Corrie... More

My girlfriend and I decided the night before that we would visit the Corrie ten Boom House. Although the tickets for the 10:00 AM tour were sold out, we showed up anyway and still got on the tour (although I do recommend buying tickets in advance, especially for the tours later in the afternoon). It was interesting to hear the... More

My daughter and I booked a trip to Holland because we were inspired by Corrie Ten Boom and her family's faith in God. It was amazing to see the rooms we had read about and especially the hiding place. The guide was inspiring and informative. (If you haven't booked a tour 10 days before you may need to arrive an...

Visited the house & did a tour in English. We had not booked & arrived early as we did not want to miss out. Our guide was Linda - she was fantastic; speaking with knowledge & passion about the Ten-boom story. The story is fascinating & the setting in this Dutch town house emphasised the issues the family were presented... More

This was a little hidden gem on our travels. We just managed to scrape into the last tour of the day after waiting an hour in line as we had arrived too late for the previous ones. So get there early to avoid disappointment! The tour was very good, including the guide and the information she conveyed. The tour is... More

Seeing the home where the Ten Booms hid people during WWII was an experience not to be missed. A different perspective from the Anne Frank house and exhibit. Read Corrie Ten Boom's book and make the trip to her home.

We waited in a cue and managed to tag along with the booked in visitors (despite it being 'fully booked') The Lady guide was superb and brought home CTB's life changing faith in Christ Jesus and all that she did for her Lord and Saviour - wow, what a story! Very humbling and challenging!

Email the house to book a spot on a tour in advance as they fill up. If you have time during your visit to Amsterdam, definitely visit Haarlem and the Corrie ten Boom House. The tour is informative and the house is well-preserved.
