Amsterdam is known as a city that gathers the most diversity of communities, ethnic groups and religions in the world! Immigrants from all over built this successful and liberal city. Jews have been part of this process from the early days. Around 1650 a group of prominent Sephardic Jews started building a synagogue at the Daniel Meijerplein near the former Jewish quarter of Amsterdam; at the time it was the largest synagogue in the world. Opposite this stunning temple sits a complex of three synagogues built by Ashkenazi Jews. It now houses the Amsterdam Jewish Historical Museum. During this private tour you will go through the Jewish old town, get to know about the people that inhabited it and how they played an important role in the history of the Jewish community in Amsterdam. (suggested tour time 3 hours)
