Discover the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg and a walk through the former Jewish neighborhood


The first Jewish people arrived in Amsterdam about 400 years ago and were of Sephardic as well as Ashkenazy origin. The Jewish immigrants were welcome in the city and the community of Amsterdam allowed them to build their synagogues around 1670. These synagogues are the oldest synagogues in Western Europe.

Your private licensed guide will pick you up in your hotel downtown Amsterdam and brings you to the Jewish neighborhood using the comfortable local public transport.

First you will see the Portuguese Synagogue, which is still used by the Sepharic Jewish Community. On Saturday (Sabbath) the Synagogue is not open to the public, so we will see the Jewish Historical Museum instead.

The guided walk through the former Jewish district includes
* the Dockworker
* Stumble stones
* Wertheimpark
* Auschwitz Monument
* the Hollandsche Schouwburg, the former Jewish theatre

You will also learn about the Jewish influence on the Amsterdam culture.

After the tour, your guide will bring you back to the hotel.
