Prinsengracht 263, dating from 1635, is a house like many other canal houses in the center of Amsterdam.
But this is the Anne Frank House Amsterdam and is a place you need to visit if you come to Amsterdam.
The Secret Annex is at the back and is not visible from the street. The entrance was closed with a revolving bookcase.
During the Second World War, Anne Frank and her family hid here for two years and wrote their famous diaries. The Anne Frank House is a moving and depressing testimony to history.
At the age of fifteen Anne Frank died in February 1945 in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
Most of us have read the diary and a visit is the way to actually see where it all happened.
It’s important realize what has happened during the war and how Jewish families suffered and died for no reason.
The Nazis murdered over 100,000 of the Jews in Amsterdam.
An emotional, humbling and moving visit. She will never be forgotten!
Try to book three month in advance and the thirty minute presentation before the visit is very worth it.
If you book one of our Holland Private Tours well in advance we can help you with the reservation of tickets to the Anne Frank House.
