Anne Frank house Amsterdam

A significant part of Dutch history… the Anne Frank House you should visit once. This is the place where the Jewish Anne Frank stayed hidden with her family for the years of German occupation in World War II. Here she also wrote her famous diary. The Secret Annex (Achterhuis) is one of the most visited museums in Amsterdam. You can visit all the important rooms in the house. An additional part of the house is also laid out as a museum, where you can learn more about Anne, her family, Mr. Pferrer and the Van Pels family who all went into hiding as well.

The Secret Annex (Achterhuis) is within walking distance of the Central Station (20 min .) and the Dam (10 min.). On the Anne Frank House website you can find all the practical information you need (opening hours, prices, etc.).

You show your ticket and go straight in. That saves you a lot of precious time that you can spend doing so much more fun in Amsterdam.

Tickets are often sold out weeks in advance on the website, so purchase them immediately as soon as you know when you are going. This is possible via the link above, click on Museum / Online ticket sales.

Anne Frank House is also open in the evening: Most of the year (except in winter) until 21:00 and in summer even later. No luck with the tickets online? Then sales are always available at the door…
