Annelies Marie Frank was born in Germany but lived most of her short life in the Netherlands. The little Jewish girl who wrote the well-known diary became one of the Amsterdam’s symbols, and a historic house dedicated to her life and her work is definitely worth a visit. Though her story is so sad and unfair. By the way, it’s better to book your visit to the Anne Frank House in advance because the queues sometimes are pretty long.

3. Van Gogh Museum
