In the end or at the end?

The endThese two phrases look very similar, but it’s important not to confuse them, because their meanings are quite different.

In the end (Dutch uiteindelijk). For example:

        It all turned out all right in the end.

At the end (Dutch aan het einde). For example:

At the end of the play, he simply got up and left.
