Visiting the Anne Frank House is a profound experience, offering insight into the life and story of Anne Frank and the harrowing times she lived in. The self-guided tour through the Secret Annex—concealed by a revolving bookcase—provides an intimate look into where Otto Frank and his family hid for two years during World War II, and where the young girl wrote the world-famous “Diary of Anne Frank.”
In addition to highlights like the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House is one of Amsterdam’s top destinations, and tickets often sell out. You must pre-purchase a ticket for a particular time slot to visit. Consider booking a wider walking tour through the Jewish Quarter to explore other historic spots in addition to the Anne Frank House.
