Depart from your river ship for a drive to the Anne Frank House, located on the Prinsengracht canal in central Amsterdam.

 

Step back in time on this poignant visit to the Frank family’s hideaway at 263 Prinsengracht, which opened as a museum in 1960. Discover the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family went into hiding during the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands. Anne Frank is famous for her touching and perceptive diary, which she started keeping at age 13. Considered one of the most important personal accounts of the Holocaust, her diary endures as an inspiring testament to the triumph of the human spirit. In it, the young German-Jewish girl recorded her joys and struggles while in hiding. See the famous diary on display, along with other exhibits.

 

Then, enjoy a guided walk back to your Crystal river ship, strolling past the 17th-century Westerkerk church, the Anne Frank statue, and Central Station, the city's main railway station.
