Anne Frank House – one of Amsterdam’s top 3 museums

The Anne Frank House is the third most popular museum in Amsterdam — after the van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

The popularity of the small museum has made it necessary to introduce a new , online tickets only system, complete with timed entry slots.

While it can be quite a challenge to secure tickets online, there are benefits as well. Earlier, waiting times in the line to the box office could easily top 2 hours.

Westertoren

The Westerkerk is Amsterdam’s — and indeed Holland’s — most famous church. At its completion, in 1631, it was the largest Protestant church in the world.

Crooners have written countless songs about the Westerkerk and its tower. Anne Frank and her family described hearing its bells from their hiding place. The painter Rembrandt van Rijn is buried in the church.

One of the city’s most photographed monuments.
