DescriptionFrom the 16th to the 17th centuries, Jewish people were the target of much hostility in Europe and were often, tragically, expelled from their homes. Amsterdam welcomed much of Europe's Jewish population and the Jewish community in Amsterdam became one of the most important and vibrant in Europe. On this route through the old Jewish quarter, you will see the main points of interest in the area related to the culture of the Jewish community. From Waterlooplein (where the Spinoza monument is located), to the Amsterdam Zoo (site of the National Holocaust Memorial), and from the Hermitage area of Amsterdam (location of the Shadow Canal Monument) to the Nieuwe Herengracht canal, where you will find the Impressive Portuguese Synagogue.
