The "Hollandsche Schouwburg", on a certain moment in time renamed the "Joodsche Schouwburg" by the nazis, because that theater was the only place of entertainment, allowed for the Jewish people in Amsterdam, has been transformed to a museum and memorial garden of the sufferings of...More

To hear how children and babies were smuggled to safety is very emotional. The staff are fantastic and take the time to speak with you individually and answer any questions you have. Well worth a visit. We brought them €15.00 ticket which gives access to...More

A fascinating and moving memorial. There is an exhibit upstairs, which is certainly worth visiting. And there is a list of the surnames of all of the Jews from Amsterdam who were murdered in the Holocaust, which is also worth taking a few minutes to...More

A site of great human suffering in WWII, this small museum is the place where jews were gathered in Amsterdam for deportation to Westerbork. On the ground floor are two impressive monuments: the remains of the theatre and the list of names of families lost....More

As you have probably read, this was the assembly point for the Jews in Amsterdam to be shipped off by the Nazis. Very important because it was the last place for many that they saw their children. We only had 20 minutes there because it...More

Hollandsche Schouwburg (National Holocaust Memorial) is not located in the Jewish quarter with most of the other Jewish sites but it is well worth a visit. The small scale of the museum should make it particularly attractive to families with young children as you can...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides

while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
