"When it's time to reflect..." Anne Frank House Tip by kandl1

Anne Frank House, Amsterdam: 243 reviews and 259 photos

 
 

In a stark contrast to the usual "Sex and Drugs" vibe one gets in Amsterdam, one of the must see places is the Anne Frank House. You retrace the steps that Anne and her family took, while hiding from the Nazi's in WWII. It is somewhat empty, but visually arresting, with some of Anne's personal artifacts still posted on the walls. You hear the stories from the family members as you walk through the house, and hear the stories in the order of when they happened. After a day of gawking at canals and prostitutes, it is quite the emotional stomach-punch.
