Special experience Anne Frank House in Amsterdam
Lines with waiting visitors outside the Anne Frank museum can get very long so it’s best to book a ticket in advance. There’s only a certain amount of people that can enter the house at the same time, and the amount of tickets that you can buy per time slot is limited. The tour itself takes about an hour, so you’ll have plenty of time left for other Amsterdam attractions. And because you are already in the city center, most of them will be in walking distance!
The best way to get around Amsterdam is by foot as everything is fairly close to each other plus Holland is a very flat country, which makes it easy for cyclists as well. Actually the main means of transportation is the bicycle and you need to be careful as they are quite fast and quieter than cars – accidents are not rare in Amsterdam. You can get to the Anne Frank House by tram, by foot, by boat or by car. Parking is scarce and is not recommended. The best way would be to take a tram or walk from Central Station.
