Amsterdam has long been a popular tourist destination, primarily thanks to its quaint cobbled streets, picturesque canals and colourful bars and cafes – but it’s also a city that’s steeped in rich history. Each of Amsterdam’s looming buildings has a story to tell and none is more powerful than that of Anne Frank House. Located in the heart of the City Centre, this historic venue is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Amsterdam.
What Expect from a Visit to Anne Frank House
For those unaware of this young writer’s life, a visit to Anne Frank House can be an emotional and eye-opening experience. Through quotes, audio clips, videos, and authentic personal items, this combined house and museum invites you to discover the two-year experience of Anne and her family after they were forced into hiding when the Nazis took control of the Netherlands in 1939.
Once inside you’ll be met with a subdued, respectful atmosphere while visitors explore the various artefacts on display.
