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.

  • 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. ❤️
  • We arrived too late for the last English tour, and I wad grateful to be included in the Flemish tour. I am so familiar with Corrie's story I was still able to follow. What a joy to be in the house.
