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

The Anne Frank House museum is one of Amsterdam’s most popular tourist attractions.

A new ticket & entry system has significantly reduced the legendary ‘eternal’ queues . However, visiting the museum takes some planning.

We explain the ticket & entry system, alert you to the busiest times, and have a serious warning about where not to get tickets. Important: Due to renovation work, through May 1, 2018, all visitors must purchase an online ticket (with a time slot) in advance. No tickets will be available at the ticket office.


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.
