The Dutch at their finest. 25,000 jews were hidden and 18,000 survived. Worth going just to learn that!

Good place to get a quick overview of life for many under the Nazis, including the fate of those that left or were forced to leave to work in Germany. Saw special exhibit on Soviet gulags while there.

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

No. They require online booking. You should book well in advance. Without online booking, long lines and only limited hours, may have to wait 3 hours. .Unfortunately we could not visit it.
