Jordaan and Anne Frank House

Anne Frank House Amsterdam
The Jordaan District was built for the working class that found work with the rich families in the Canal Belt. After a walk in the charming Jordaan neighbourhood, go to the Westerkerk (Western Church) on the Prinsengracht. A few blocks further you will find the Anne Frank House. This well-known museum tells the history of the eight people in hiding and those who helped them during the war. Anne Frank's diary is among the original objects on display.

The Jordaan District was built in the early 17th century as part of the major expansion of the city of Amsterdam. Walk around in the tiny streets of this charming area. At the corner of the Prinsengracht and the Rozengracht you could visit the Westerkerk, built between 1620 and 1631. The church is open to the public between 11.00 and 15.00, six days a week (closed on Sundays).

In between the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House, is a contemporary restaurant/bar with terrace called WERCK, located in the former coach house of the Westerkerk Church.
Visit the former hiding place, where Anne Frank wrote her diary during World War II. The Anne Frank House is one of the most popular museums in Amsterdam. It's really impressive when you walk through the rooms and realize what happened in this place during World War II.
