The Fault in Our Stars filming locations in Amsterdam

amsterdam filming locations the fault in our stars

Based on the novel by John Green, The Fault in our Stars was a huge hit when it came out in 2014. One of the romantic highlights in the film is when the main characters visit Amsterdam in search of their favorite author, but it's also the place where they fall in love. You can visit the all the famous Amsterdam filming locations of The Fault in our Stars and trace the steps of Hazel and Augustus yourself.

The bench on Leidsegracht

As you walk along the canals in the center of Amsterdam, you will pass the famous bench where Augustus announces that cancer has spread through his body.

You can find this bench on Leidsegracht 2.

Unfortunately, the actual bench has been stolen and replaced by a new one.

Peter Van Houten's House

Peter Van Houten is Hazel's favorite author in the film. He's also the main reason why she and Augustus visit Amsterdam. You can find the house of this fictional author at Vondelstraat 162 (near the famous Vondelpark).

Hotel De Filosoof

According to the book, their hotel De Filosoof is just around the corner of Peter Van Houten's fictional house (address: Anna van den Vondelstraat 6). That is indeed the case.

However, The Fault in Our Stars wasn't made here. The real filming location is hotel Pillows Anna van den Vondel at Leidsekade 97.


In the film, you can see Hazel and Augustus walk hand in hand past a group of violin players. This was filmed in the tunnel that goes through the Dutch National Museum (Rijksmuseum).

Though the interiors of the museum are not featured in the film, they're well worth of visit as they host famous paintings by Vermeer and Rembrandt.

The museum is located on Museumstraat 1

Anne Frank House

One of the tourist attractions Hazel and Augustus visit in Amsterdam is the Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht 267. This is the place where Hazel can't catch her breath when climbing the stairs. That the Anne Frank House was featured in the story is hardly a surprise because the original Anne Frank's Diary ends just like Hazel's favorite book, An Imperial Affliction. It's a nice nod to the author's inspiration.

Originally, it's the house where Anne Frank and her family used to hide for the nazis. Here you can see videos with testimonies from people who knew her, parts of Anne Frank's notes, official documents from her dad's company, film magazines Anne Frank used to read, quotes from her diary, original photographs, etc.

Expect to be moved as you'll be confronted with all the horrible events that happened in this house.

Tip: Book your tickets online well in advance. Chances are they will be sold out during tourist season. Even on less busy days, you might have to wait in line for over an hour just to get your ticket.


Hazel and Augustus share a ride on the Amsterdam tram. Why not take this tram yourself to cross the city and thus have a view of many famous tourist attractions.

Boat tour

Several scenes in the film show the canal boats of Amsterdam. Book in advance to take a boat trip just like Hazel and Augustus.

By the way, in case you're looking for the Oranjee restaurant, this was actually built and shot in Pittsburgh.

  10. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
