What makes this tour special

Explore the historic city of Amsterdam, and learn about all its ghostly secrets and thrilling tales of hauntings and inexplicable happenings. On your private tour, you will:

Explore the beautiful city of Amsterdam and learn all about its rich medieval history, the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, and – as you wander down the eerie backstreets and shadowy canal paths. Hear the spine-tingling, chilling and spooky ghost stories for which the city is famous! 

Amsterdam was the richest and most powerful trading city in Europe – and like all historic cities, it has had its fair share of death and disease, murder and mayhem, crime and punishment. In old Amsterdam, the Dutch were deeply superstitious, and the city is rich in medieval folklore, with many stories of ghosts and goblins, witches and demons. 

You’ll hear stories about the witch-hunts, tales of poisonings and beheadings beneath the blade of the guillotine, and the haunting miracle of a lady called Cornelia Arens, whose coffin kept moving from its burial place until the authorities complied with her wishes… You’ll learn the legend of a corrupt monk named Aloysius who met a grisly end and is said to haunt the upper floor of an Amsterdam canal house, searching for his head. 

Learn the real history of Amsterdam through the telling of ghost stories while exploring the city, beautifully lit at night! Please note, this tour is very mature content and may not be suitable for children of all ages.
