Women's History Tour

Discover Amsterdam's famous women - and those who should be!

I learned so much about women’s history, the Dutch history and got to see areas and landmarks of Amsterdam in a very new light.

Get inspired by the hidden figures on this feminist Amsterdam tour!

Meet the women who made Amsterdam. Too many tours reduce female Amsterdammers to working women and Dutch feminists when there’s actually a huge variety in Amsterdam women’s history. Women have done everything from changing society at the highest levels to influencing culture to defying earthly and spiritual powers. This small-group walking tour through Amsterdam’s historic center reveals the way women across the centuries pursued their goals in the face of societal and structural resistance. Let them energize and empower you as you see the city from a new angle.

Something we can’t wait to share:

Why are so many female writers connected to this spot? What allowed this place to remain a Catholic haven in the heart of Protestant Amsterdam? And how is a 17th-century act of defiance still remembered today?
