During the school holidays, the queue is often long and you will probably have to wait quite a while. In order to avoid this, we advise you to go early in the morning or later in the evening. If you buy your tickets "on line", you won't need to queue for tickets...
Anne Frank was a young jewish adolescent who wrote a personnel diary during the time she and her family were hiding in a secret
apartment (hidden in her fathers business) in Amsterdam during the german occupation in the second world war.
After two years in the hidden apartment, the Frank family were betrayed and deported to nazi concentration camps. Otto Frank the father, was the only survivor in the family. When he came back to Amsterdam at the end of the war, he published his daughters diary which has since been translated into many languages and has become one of the most widely read book in the world.
Today, open to the public, the Frank family home is a very powerful historical remnant.
