Bruchim haba'im! Explore the Jewish heritage of Amsterdam


Explore the former Jewish part of the city and learn everything about the importance of the Jewish community for the city of Amsterdam in the past and today.

During our walking tour we will also visit the Jewish Historical museum, the Portuguese Synagogue, the Holland Theatre and the Auschwitz monument.

The Jewish Historical museum is located in four former Ashkenazi synagogues which are connected with each other. The museum provides a perfect impression about Jewish life in Amsterdam from the beginning around 1600 until today.

The beautiful Sephardic Portuguese synagogue, which dates back to 1675, was the largest synagogue in the world when it was build and is still an active synagogue. See the treasury with its unique collection of ceremonial objects and learn about the oldest Jewish library in the world that is also located here.

In 1942 the Holland Theatre became the deportation centre of Amsterdam. Now, the building is a monument for the 104000 Jews who were brutally murdered during the occupation.
