After visiting Nuremberg, Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow and Auschwitz this holiday the final visit to Anne Frank Huis placed a personal and tragic story into the broader picture. So sad, but you really must go and hope that such atrocities are never repeated.

I had looked forward to visiting Anne Franks House all Weekend, when we finally decided to withstand the queue I was sadly disappointed. The queue didn't take as long as first thought it would, which was a pleasant surprise- also free WIFI available outside. When we paid for our tickets we slowly made our way through the first part of... More

Had about a 40 minute wait to get in,but well worth it.When you eventually reach the annex hiding place you get a sense of how scared the two families were of being discovered & how brave the office staff were to help them.Well worth a visit :-)

We bought our tickets in advance which meant we didn't have the 30-60 minute wait of others and we also were given a 1/2 hour overview along with about 40 other people. It was well worth the 1/2 hour and the extra money.

This is amazing. They have done an outstanding job preserving the annex and explaining how the Franks and others lived for the 2 years there. It was incredibly moving and a place you cannot miss in Amsterdam! BUT you must must must get timed tickets. We did and and when we arrived there was almost a 3 hour wait, even... More

If you are interested in WWII history, and even if you are not, this is one attraction to visit. Seeing what these families went through is emotional. The queue can get very long, so visiting later in the evening is a better option. No photos are allowed inside due to the emotions this site may have on individuals.

We bought our tickets online a month before our visit and got one of the last times offered that day!!!! The line outside is about two blocks long, UNLESS you have purchased your ticket ahead of time. If so, you can ring the buzzer on a side door and go right in at your designated time on your ticket 😀... More

This is a very popular site; it is well worth the price and wait. It does get very buzy; my recommendation is go early morning. It is incredible to think of what transpired in the home. It is very interesting!

Incredibly moving and very educational. Anne's book was a mandatory read in high school along with seeing the movie. So it was really interesting to actually visit the house this tragic yet moving story took place.
