After the second World War there is no longer a true Jewish neigborhood here; that is why I think it is special to follow in this tour the traces that show the bustling neighborhood of earlier times and the tragic history of the years 40-45.

The Waterloo Square Area with the town hall and Opera House and flea market, the former Jewish neighborhood called Plantage, where the Jewish people, initially as refugee’s, and for many generations thereafter, lived, loved, worked and worshipped. You will find here the Rembrandt House, the old boat-lock and special view towards the historic port, the Zoo, the Botanical Gardens, as well as many World War II Monuments, and the formidable 17th C. Synagoge.

This tour is for those who want to experience a very different story of Amsterdam. And it is an absolute must-see for people who are interested in the Jewish heritage in our city.
