Anne Frank's House As part of a recent holiday, I went to Amsterdam. At the top of my list whilst there was visiting Anne Frank's house. I loved Anne Frank's diary when I was at school. I read it in year 8 after being encouraged by my older sister. To this day, I consider it to have been the first 'moving' novel I read and for this reason, it has a very special place in my book collection. For those who are unaware, Anne Frank is the author of her own diary. She was born in Frankfurt in Germany in 1929. She and her family and friends were some of the millions of Jewish people who were persecuted during the Second World War. In 1933, Hitler took ... Read the complete review

One of the most popular tourist spots in Amsterdam is Anne Frank Huis - the home of both the Frank and Van Pels families. This is an emotional place to visit with a tragic story to tell and unlike any other "attraction" in the city. During the Second World War in 1942 the German invaders were actively seeking Jews in Amsterdam, leading to the two families hiding in a secret annexe on Otto Frank's businees premises where he made pectin. The annexe was directly above the warehouse section of the premises and the families had to keep quiet for fear of the workers discovering them. The warehouse section of the museum is on the ground floor and is one ... Read the complete review

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam, which is a subject that has fascinated me for a long time. I was certainly not disappointed with the experience, but generally speaking I'm not sure how interesting the outing would be for the average tourist. Getting to the Anne Frank Museum was a bit different for me, as I had decided to rent a little canal pedal bike with a friend, and the stop was directly outside of the attraction. There was however some parking not too far away, perhaps 300 metres, so it would be possible to park. There are otherwise good transport links. Despite going at a very busy time of time, ...

The Anne Frank House is a must-visit museum for tourists in Amsterdam. It's about a 15 minute walk fromAmsterdam Centraal station, and although it's vaguely signposted you really need a map. You can also take tram 13 or 17 or bus 170, 171 or 172 from the station, getting off at 'Westermarkt', and then going right onto Prinsengracht. The house is open daily from 9.00 a.m, and doesn't close on Mondays like most Dutch museums. They only close on Yom Kippur. In the summer the house stays open until 10.00 p.m although out of season it closes at 5.00p.m. There are some exceptions, which you can find on their website, ... Read the complete review

This is a must-visit for those going to Amsterdam. It will take you about 15-20 minutes to walk there from the central railway station (Amsterdam Centraal), and although there are one or two signposts you really need a tourist map to find it as it is fairly well hidden! If you prefer not to walk, you can take tram 13 or 17 or bus 170, 171 or 172 from the station, getting off at the bus stop/tram stop called 'Westermarkt', and then turning to your right onto the Prinsengracht street. The house is open year round every day from 9.00 a.m, which unusually for The Netherlands includes Mondays, a popular day for museums to be closed, but not in this ... Read the complete review
