The Anne Frank House (Dutch: Anne Frank Huis) is a historic house and biographical museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank. The building is located at the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in the city center of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). Anne Frank did not survive the war, but in 1947 her wartime diary was published. In 1957, the Anne Frank Foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block.
The museum opened on 3 May 1960. It preserves the hiding place, has a permanent exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, and has an exhibition space about all forms of persecution and discrimination. In 2013, the museum had 1.2 million visitors and was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.

Amsterdam is most famous throughout the world for its canals. The reflection of the historic facades, bridges and boats in the water creates a unique atmosphere. But the city’s web of waterways also offers plenty of surprises even city residents are often unaware of.
Such as a number of canal houses that are open to visitors, featuring beautiful interiors dating from the 17th, 18th or 19th centuries. Perhaps the gardens hidden behind these houses offer the biggest surprise of all – with only the sound of chirping birds, these gardens offer an oasis of tranquility shutting out the hustle and bustle of the city around them.
