The Anne Frank House at Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam is where she lived in hiding with her family for more than two years during World War II. Now converted into a museum it contains a sobering exhibition about the persecution of the Jews during the war, as well as discrimination in general.”

The museum's impressive collection includes a million cultural artifacts dating from the 13th century to the modern-day, among them more than 8,000 important paintings spread across 250 rooms of this sprawling building.

“Set smack in the city center, De Wallen is one of Amsterdam’s oldest neighborhoods. In 1270 a bridge was built in Dam Square to connect the Rokin and Damrak roads and this new neighborhood, due to its walled canals, was called De Wallen. The area is also known as the red-light district because of the three hundred one-room cabins rented by prostitutes who advertise their wares in red-lit windows. But there is much more to De Wallen than its red-light reveries. The neighborhood is a fantastic juxtaposition of historic churches, age-old architecture, and late-night pursuits. Packed with interesting shops, pubs, fantastic restaurants, leaning gabled houses, and the city’s most charming canals, De Wallen has the character to spare. ”
