Even today, a walk around what was once the Jewish neighborhood can evoke the colorful life of Jewish Amsterdam. Some buildings, such as the Portuguese Synagogue, have retained their original functions. In other cases, only their façades tell us who once lived there or what these buildings were used for.
The walk starts off at the former Ashkenazi synagogue complex, today the premises of the Jewish Historical Museum. From here you will walk past a great many façades, buildings, and monuments that recall the multi-faceted history of Amsterdam’s old Jewish neighborhood.
Depending on how long the tour takes, you’ll see the Waterlooplein, Jodenbreestraat, Gassan Diamonds on Uilenburgerstraat, the Portuguese Synagogue, the Dokwerker (Docker) monument to the general strike of 1941, the Auschwitz Monument, Wertheim Park, the premises of the General Netherlands Diamond Workers Union (ANDB) on Henri Polaklaan, and the Hollandsche Schouwburg, former theater and deportation site. Please tell us which ones you're particularly interested in when you make a reservation.
