Full description

Explore the historic Jewish Quarter which had been the centre of the Dutch Jewish community from the 16th century until World War II. Jewish Cultural Quarter covers less than one square kilometre and it is placed in the heart of the historic Amsterdam’s old Jewish neighbourhood. Discover key sights which reveal the century-long Jewish contribution to Amsterdam’s history and hear the incredible life story of Anne Frank.

Choose a 2-hours tour and get to know places, monuments and buildings in the Jewish Cultural Quarter through the eyes of the young Anne Frank. Meet your 5-Stars Guide at the Holocaust Memorial and begin your tour through the Old Jewish Quarter. Admire Hollandsche Schouwburg theatre which was converted into a deportation center during Nazi occupation. Stop at the National Holocaust Museum – built inside a former school used by Dutch resistance fighters to smuggle Jewish children out of the city. Have a reflection at the Auschwitz Monument and admire the magnificent Portuguese Synagogue. Stop at the Dock Worker Statue which commemorates the general strike against the treatment of Jews. Pass by the Jewish Historical Museum and finish at the Waterlooplein Flea Market – one such destination not to be missed.

Extend your tour to 3-hours and marvel at the interior of Portuguese Synagogue. During the Dutch Golden Age, it was the biggest synagogue in the world and also the biggest building in Amsterdam. It’s almost untouched by the hands of time. You can still appreciate the antiques and grand interiors that almost haven’t changed since the 17th century.

Choose a 4-hours tour and immerse yourself deeper in the Jewish Culture in Amsterdam. Visit the Jewish Historical Museum and experience the culture and history of Jews and Judaism. Admire over 11,000 objects and works of art. Let your 5-Stars Guide show you the permanent exhibition of the museum that reflects the versatility of Judaism in the past and present.

Extend your tour to 6 hours and have a relaxing canal cruise with audio guide. Have a lunch break (optional) after an intensive and very informative walking tour through the Jewish Quarter.

The guide will tell you more fascinating stories and make sure to deliver you unforgettable memories!
