Anne Frank Huis
On July 5th 1942, young Jewish girl Anne Frank and her family went into hiding in a Secret Annexe within a 17th-century canalside house, her father’s former office. For two years they managed to hide from the Nazis, sustained by help from friends, before ultimately being transported to concentration camps. Today, the Anne Frank House is open to the public, and shares the story of the Frank family with its visitors using Anne’s famous diary as a reference. Anne’s original writings, personal documents, objects and photographs are permanently on display. Tip: Arrive early or buy a queue jump ticket online, as waiting times can be extremely long.
