Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

    An emotional & unforgettable experience
    Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to see where Anne Frank lived while she was in hiding with her family during an unimaginable time in history. I finally got the chance to walk through the Secret Annex where she shared her innermost feelings over two long years. It was a touching and emotional experience for me and my husband. The Anne Frank House pays tribute to Anne's courage, strength and inspiring words that will live on forever.

    Moving and memorable experience being in the Anne Frank Attic
    A must visit for anyone who believes that we must understand the past to create a better future. As a person whose family members were sent to their deaths simply for being Jewish, this is a one of a kind experience. The lessons to be learned, the human tragedy and the human triumph are both exemplified here. Extremely moving experience to enter attic that poor Anne Frank and 7 others lived in in fear trying to escape with their lives only to be caught and sent to death camps. Reading the hauntng words of a 14-16 year old girl and knowing that she lost her life just weeks before the Nazi's were defeated makes this such a tragedy. Her words live on and she is every victim's voice. This is a truly unique place to visit and image what their lives were like.

    Amazing and So Moving
    Go, go, go. This is perhaps the best excursion I have taken anywhere in the world, including swimming with sharks in Bora Bora. It exceeded my expectations ten fold and was wonderfully presented. I am not a religious person by any means, but this exhibition was so moving and I am sure that anyone who has an ounce of compassion will be touched by the information and story presented. Reservations are a must.

    Interesting tour
    Very interesting to see and well displayed. Very hard to imagine what it must have been like for them. Tour was in varied languages and free cloak room for bags. Some areas were very steep narrow stairs which I found to quite claustrophobic. Would suggest if you have mobility difficulties.

    Excellent tour
    Plan on this historical tour and get your tickets well ahead of time. There is virtually NO chance of you getting tickets only a few days before your trip. The museum releases tickets about 6 weeks before the day of the tour, on Tuesdays. Get the tickets online, from the official website, and have them ready to go. Totally worth it. If you can, read the book before you go. The book itself is stunning but then when you tour, you get a sense of what the people must have been living through. It's so sad, so terrible, and very insightful.

    Book tickets on time through official website! sell out quickly! 10/10
    I have always been interested in the history of anne frank, i came to amsterdam for this experience, I found it very emotional and empowering, I think it’s important everybody sees this. A lot seems to have been built on with the building such as a cafe, apart from the annex itself which to me was abit disheartening. You could leave your bags at the front and free audio was given, highly suggest the audio for the experience

    Moving experience
    We booked our tickets 6 weeks in advance, which is essential. Entry was very well organised, as was moving through the house. Photography inside is NOT allowed, and it was disappointing to see a young British couple snapping away at everything and anything on their mobile phones! Please be respectful when you visit this wonderful place. The whole experience was very moving and I highly recommend it.

    Riveting story of a talented young woman
    The tour gives a real sense of the story of Anne Frank, the struggles of living in hiding for 2 years and the tragedy of the end of a beautiful young woman and so many other due to Hitler’s hatred of the Jewish people. It is a moving, heartbreaking and inspiring visit to their hiding place. Be sure to reserve your tickets as soon as they become available. They sell out immediately.

    Anne Frank House is a Must Visit!
    This is such an important part of history. One needs to experience it for themselves. Anne and family were so brave. The tour was bone chilling and got under my skin. Heartbreaking yet, so inspiring. There's a clear message: end discrimination and love everyone.

    Emotional
    I was able to secure tickets to visit Anne Frank's House. I also purchased the 30 minute introduction which was very helpful and well done. Tickets are available six weeks in advance. Please visit the website.

We did the presentation with tour. Presentation was excellent, I highly recommend that. This is a sacred place. It was very well managed- not too crowded despite being sold out. It was really something to stand in the rooms where Anne lived and wrote.

Hard to describe, great overview of the family and background of their plight. The presenter was a young lady and she was excellent. Walking through the Annex is more than an emotional experience.

This is part of the Importance to keep history building’s a live to commemorate the lives of those that past true WWII, and to realize that what we have is so easy to loose. The museum is really well organized and even is a small place you never feel crowded. I really encourage to get tickets in advance, because they sold out fast.

Make your reservations six weeks in advance and purchase tickets including the short program if possible. The young man who gave the presentation was informative and set the tone for the visit with historical facts about The Frank Family and photos to give perspective. The audio guide was informative and well organized, the house is sparse but evocative.

This was one of the main attractions we wanted to visit in Amsterdam and it was a fascinating experience. To see the factory and the attic where they had so little space, was incredible. There was also an accompanying audioguide, which provided history of the Frank family and the people who helped them. This was probably one of the best museums we visited in Amsterdam and I'd recommend everybody should visit.

The house is not that much attractive at all, but the history behind this house touched me a lot. That's why visited the place.

I visited in the third week of April and booked the ticket online just one day before directly from the official site.

Depressing but good time. The line was long but went very fast. Something to do once besides eat stroopwaffels when your in Amsterdam.

Hardly anyone in our group said a word. I opted for the tour with a 30-minute presentation in English. It was helpful to set the context and provide some detail for someone just loosely familiar with the story. However, the museum exhibits accomplish the same so the extra cost for the talk is not essential if those tickets are sold out.
Access to the annex’s hidden rooms was a great experience, and I was stuck by how respectful everyone was. Hardly anyone in our group said a word.
Photos inside are not permitted, which usually annoys me, but it makes sense here because everything is so compact.

This was the one place I wanted to visit during our stay in Amsterdam. Ticket must be booked early with new tickets released 6 weeks before. Queuing is managed by strict time slots but would recommend an early slot. The audio guide is informative as you work you way through the house and the hidden annex.
