Jewish presence and tradition in Holland

Private tour in Amsterdam

Tour Price : 560-880 euro Duration : full day Languages: English, German, Dutch

The Jewish presence and tradition in Holland represent one of the many aspects the country’s history. The Jewish community was always large and active, especially in the period after the 16th century, when the Spanish Jews have fled from the horrors of Inquisition and settled in the quiet and economically country of Holland. That’s why there is a large number of landmarks with prominent Jewish influences found all over the country, especially in Amsterdam .This ethnic group was free to exercise their rich traditions and made part of the intense trading culture the country was known for.

And you will see some of the most fascinating monuments of Jewish culture on this land during our private tour in Holland .The northern part of the country , a region with a rich Jewish tradition, has the smallest synagogue. In the immediate vicinity, hidden in the greenery there is a beautiful intimate Jewish cemetery.Also across the border, in Germany, you will actually find traces of a rich Jewish culture. A trip to this place can very well be combined with a visit to the city of Groningen or the nature reserve of the Dollard, part of the tidal area of the Wadden region and well- known for its bird-life.

The province of Groningen is also well known for its beautiful medieval churches and famous historical organs.In camp Westerbork , departure place for the train to Auschwitz, Anne Frank was detained before her transport to the death final camp.
