The Anne Frank House is easily one of the most iconic locations to be found anywhere in Amsterdam. Once home to the brave girl the house is named after, it has become a museum dedicated to her memory, with the Anne Frank Foundation being established in 1957 to protect the property. Since then, this small apartment block has become one of the must-see attractions for tourists from all over the world.
Visitors can receive an audio tour, which guides them around the building and providing information on Anne and her life. Inside the house, you can see models of how it was constructed to hide the Frank family in the Second World War, along with original documentation and artefacts. There are also very rare photographs and quotations from Frank’s diary on the walls.
This is a very moving and historical location, offering visitors a unique experience. It is recommended that you book tickets in advance, though, as queues are known to be lengthy.
