Full description
Learn about the history of one of the most important and vibrant Jewish communities in Europe and their contribution to the Netherlands on this guided tour. Follow in the footsteps of the Jewish settlers who made Amsterdam their home, often as a result of persecution from other countries over the centuries. On this walking tour through the old Jewish quarter, you'll discover which areas of the city they chose to set up home. Hear how they survived the war, and what is left of the community today. See the main buildings still standing, along with the homes of prominent community leaders. Explore Waterlooplein, where the Spinoza monument is located, and visit the site of the National Holocaust Memorial. You'll also walk along the Nieuwe Herengracht canal, where the impressive Portuguese Synagogue can be found.
