Do you have the courage to walk the historic Green Hill Cemetery in the dark? Are you interested in learning more about the people who lived in Amsterdam in the 19th and early 20th centuries - and may have decided to stay around and keep a watchful eye on their city?
Tours start at Amsterdam City Hall, 61 Church Street, where parking will be available and ticket holders will check in and receive a voucher with their tour time.

Sturdy walking shoes are recommended as the tour will be over uneven ground in Green Hill Cemetery. While you’re waiting for your tour, or after your return, there will be plenty to do at City Hall. There will be ghostly stories to listen to, a palm reader, psychics, and free refreshments.
