The Netherlands is known as a country of mills, bulb fields, dykes and canals. However, there’s has much more to offer. For years Amsterdam has been one of the most popular tourist cities of Europe. Every year the Dutch capital is visited by visitors from all over the world.
Anne Frank museum - Amsterdam
Nowadays, the rooms at the Anne Frank House, though empty, still breathe the atmosphere of that period of time. Quotations from the diary, historical documents, photographs, film images, and original objects that belonged to those in hiding and the helpers illustrate the events that took place here. Anne’s original diary and other notebooks are on display in the museum. In the multimedia space, visitors can go on a “virtual journey” through the Anne Frank House, accessing background information about the people in hiding and World War Two. A contemporary exhibition is presented in the exhibition hall.
Canal cruise - Amsterdam
The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. They continue define the city’s landscape and in 2010 Amsterdam’s canal ring was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
Let us guide guide you through the canals of Amsterdam!
Corrie Ten Boom museum - Amsterdam
The home of Corrie ten Boom is now a museum! It is perfectly situated in the center of the beautiful old city of Haarlem, Holland. (Haarlem is a 15 minute train ride west of Amsterdam.) Much of the house has been refurbished to appear as it did in the 1940’s. Visitors can see the actual “hiding place,” which is a small area behind a false wall in Corrie’s bedroom. This is where Jews and others were safely hidden from the Nazis. The museum also contains a book shop. The Corrie ten Boom House is located at 19 Barteljorisstraat, Haarlem.
National Liberation museum
The Liberation Museum is set in the beautiful landscape near Nijmegen, Arnhem and the German border, a unique location: Operation Market Garden, the largest airborne operation in history took place here in September 1944 and Operation Veritable, the Rhineland Offensive, the final road to freedom in Europe, started from here in February 1945.
The museum brings the historical events of the liberation by the American, British, Canadian and Polish troops back to life. In the museum, you live through the period preceding the war, experience the occupation, celebrate the liberation and witness the rebuilding of the Netherlands and Europe after the war. Aromas, interactive presentations, diorama’s, models, original films and sound fragments captivatingly depict the liberation.
The museum shows both young and old the current value and importance of democracy, freedom and human rights.
