THE JEWISH WORLD ... AMSTERDAM!
Consider a Walking Tour of THE JEWISH QUARTER. Telling the intertwined story of the Jews and Amsterdam since the 17th Century. The "Jodenbuurt", lying east of the Amstel River, contains a wealth of landmarks, markets and important museums. There are interesting educational opportunities for children and a KOSHER CAFE! Even REMBRANDT'S HOUSE MUSEUM, recently restored where the painter lived and worked at the height of his local success.
