    Beyoncé Knowles and rapper husband Jay-Z have visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

    The American couple, who are currently performing on tour around Europe, viewed the former Frank family safe-house that was later discovered by the Nazis, on Wednesday.

    Beyoncé, wearing a denim jumpsuit and black hat, was pictured signing the visitors book.

    “They were very impressed by their visit,” said an Anne Frank House spokesperson.

    Gillian Walnes, executive director of the Anne Frank Trust UK, said the visit “sends a very positive message to young fans.

    "It invites their curiosity about knowing more – reading Anne’s diary, or even visiting the Anne Frank House.

    "When Justin Bieber visited last year, and caused such a media furore, it actually resulted in thousands of young people wanting to know more about Anne Frank and her story.“
