Jewish Heritage Amsterdam Private Tour

Discover the Jewish Heritage of Amsterdam on this Private Tour. You will see the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg and other Jewish Monuments and make 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.

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

The private guided walk through the former Jewish district includes:

  • The Dockworker
  • Stumble stones
  • Wertheimpark
  • Auschwitz Monument
  • The Hollandsche Schouwburg, the former Jewish theatre
