Historic Site
“During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). She did not survive the war but her wartime diary was published in 1947. Ten years later the Anne Frank Foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block. The museum opened on 3 May 1960. It preserves the hiding place, has a permanent exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, and has an exhibition space about all forms of persecution and discrimination. In 2013 and 2014, the museum had 1.2 million visitors and was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.”

Italian Restaurant
“The strength of the Italian cuisine is its purity, simplicity and honesty. In Toscanini we cook according to this tradition. Every day, except on Sundays, the chefs prepare dishes from carefully chosen ingredients. The vegetables come from organic farms or from Italy. The meat is from the organic butcher and fish arrives fresh every day. We bake bread in our own bakery, and the pasta is homemade. We work with various products of Slow Food presidia in Italy. Presidia are projects that enable small producers to keep working on a small-scale and artisanal basis while using the original products and production methods from their region. The wine list features only wines from Italy, most made from native grape varieties. The large, bright space with open kitchen and the informal atmosphere is a main attraction of the restaurant.”

Thai Restaurant
“We had to wait a while until we were assigned a table, but if you have a place you're fine. And so popular tent. We sat by the window. The food was very tasty and the portions were not too big. Everything went clean. It also took a while before we could settle the bill and leave the restaurant again. The moment we left, there was an even bigger line than when we arrived.
