Of which movie do you think of when you’re visiting Amsterdam?
Right, The Fault in Our Stars.
Some of the most memorable scenes were shot in this city and I think every fan has to see some of the spots when they are in Amsterdam.
When I had the chance to go there last weekend, I didn’t just enjoyed the beauty of this city but also visited some locations of the film.
The most popular spot is probably ‘the bench’. Even though the scene isn’t one of the happiest ones, I was very happy to be there.
In 2014 however, the bench was stolen and soon after replaced by a new one. There are still rumors that this is the original one from the movie but it’s unconfirmed.

Anne Frank House
Another famous place is the Anne Frank House in which Hazel and Augustus have their first kiss. Unfortunately, the museum was sold out this day so I couldn’t go inside but just as Hazel and Gus, I leaned against the railing on front of the entrance.
The Vondelpark is Amsterdam’s most popular and second largest park. Peter Van Houten’s house is located in the Vondelstraat nearby the park. Although Hazel and Gus don’t visit the park itself, it is briefly mentioned.

Although it is said that their hotel in Amsterdam is called “De Filosoof”, it was actually shot in the American Hotel.

On their date night, Hazel and Gus walk along outside of the Rijksmuseum.
And even John Green’s photo in the back of the book was photographed in front of the beautiful museum.
