Amsterdam is one beautiful city. There is so much history here, and enough to keep you busy no matter how long you visit for.
One location that is worth stopping by, is the ‘Fault In Our Stars’ bench that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort sit on in the film.
Woodley and Elgort play terminally ill teens, Hazel and Augustus, who meet at a cancer support group. They visit Amsterdam and share a kiss on this very bench, in one of the film’s most memorable moments.
Now, fans of the film can re-create that same moment, (or just sit on the bench) and pretend they are in the film.
Film locations aside, this bench sits on a beautiful canal that is lovely to walk along or just sit and enjoy the view.
It is hard to find, so a google map of the address, and even a screen shot of the scene will help fans to track this bench down.
The location for this bench can be found at Leidsegracht #4 where it intersects with Herengracht.
Another worthwhile location for historic purposes as well as filming locations, is the Anne Frank House, which had it’s exterior used in the filming of this movie as well. The interior shots of the house were in fact re-created-in a very detailed representation, you can’t tell the difference.
The Anne Frank House is located at Prinsengracht 263-267, 1016 GV Amsterdam.
Any fan of ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ must stop at these locations next time they are visiting Amsterdam.
