Anne Frank House

The Anne Frank house is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about her and the war.

It’s an upsetting experience so make sure you take a moment after going in before you move on to the next attraction. Make sure to book three months in advance otherwise tickets sell out.


A’Dam Lookout

If you like to live life on the edge, then you should take the ferry to Noord and go to the A’Dam Lookout where you can swing over the edge of the building and look out over Amsterdam. There’s a cafe, light up disco elevator and a roof to chill on. It’s an experience you won’t regret!
