Once upon a time, Amsterdam was known as a place full of ghosts, witches, and demons. After all, during its more than 800 years of history, the city has had its fair share of death and disease, pain and suffering, and murder and mayhem. Join our ghost walker as he leads you through the truly dark and terror-filled history of Amsterdam.The tours are conducted by an experienced guide who is well versed in the history of his city and its haunted sites. Through the ancient art of storytelling he will take you back in time and make you relive those days when ghosts and demons still roamed the town.Perhaps he will tell you the tale of the devout nun Cornelia who returned from the dead to haunt her sisters. Or you will hear about the ghost of Old Cornelius, who slowly drove his killer to madness. Or the monk Aloysius who lived a depraved and treacherous life, and whose ghost is perhaps still hidden somewhere in the attic of an Amsterdam canal house, searching for his head

 We built this tour because it is a different side of Amsterdam, which often goes untold to tourists though is familiar to locals.
