After a filling and delicious dinner at Kantjil & de Tijger, we decided to walk over to theAnne Frank House, which was located near Westerkerk in the Jordaan area.
The Anne Frank House was one of the highly rated tourists spots in Amsterdam. The queue for the museum was incredibly long during the day. Fortunately it closes late at 10pm during the summer. When we arrived at the museum at 9pm, we were told that the museum tour takes around 1 hour, and so we purchased tickets and entered the museum. Pictured above was the canal-side façade of the house.
Admission fee was priced at €8.50 per adult. We thought the museum tour was very informative and interesting, although the history behind was very depressing. The museum was dedicated to a Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank, who hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the building. For more information about visiting the museum, please visit their official website.
After walking around for a while we started to crave for desserts. Randomly we chose a café in that area for a light bite. Pictured above was the front door of Metropolitan Deli. The photo was taken after the café was closed.
Since poffertjes were not available at night, we decided to have their waffle with a scoop of pistachio ice-cream priced at €4.25. The waffle was served warm and it was rather sweet. The light but flavourful ice-cream provided a nice contrast to the warm ice-cream. It was an enjoyable light snack.
