Jewish Tour of Amsterdam

(5 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Amsterdam & environs

This private tour features the cultural highlights of the Netherlands, with a special focus on the most interesting Jewish sites in Amsterdam.

Enjoy in-depth private touring of Amsterdam's historic Jewish neighborhoods and fascinating Jewish sites including the Anne Frank House, Portuguese Synagogue, Dutch Resistance Museum, Jewish Museum, Hollandsche Schouwburg (Dutch Theatre), and Beth Haim, the oldest Jewish cemetery in the Netherlands. Tour the highlights of the renowned Rijksmuseum with a focus on works like Rembrandt's The Jewish Bride and paintings by Jozef Israels. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange meetings with leaders in the local Jewish community, permission to attend Shabbat services at the Portuguese Synagogue, a visit to Ets Haim Library (the oldest Jewish library in the world), kosher meals and more.

Also enjoy a private cruise through Amsterdam's famous canals and visit the most interesting neighborhoods to see our favorite markets, courtyard gardens, gabled houses, canals and bridges. Also tour historic houses that evoke the Dutch Golden Age, such as the Rembrandt House Museum or Museum Van Loon, the home of a co-founder of the Dutch East India Company. Other options include touring other museums such as the Van Gogh Museum, seeing interesting contemporary architecture, shopping for antiques, or dining on culinary treats such as rijsttafel ("rice table"), an Indonesian-influenced meal of many small dishes.

One day, visit the bustling Aalsmeer flower auction, where millions of beautiful flowers are sold and shipped around the world. Continue to Haarlem, where several famous Dutch painters once lived, to visit the courtyard gardens, market square and the home of Corrie ten Boom, who hid hundreds of Jews during World War II. Also visit Zaanse Schans, an open-air museum of windmills and traditional architecture, to visit a cheese shop, see colorful pigments being ground in a windmill, watch wooden clogs being made and sample typical Dutch baked goods. Depending on your travel dates, we can also arrange a visit to the beautiful gardens of the Keukenhof (mid-March to mid-May) to stroll among thousands of colorful tulips, hyacinths and other flowers.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange a variety of special interest activities in and around Amsterdam, such as attending a performance at the Concertgebouw, biking through the city or countryside, touring museums with an art expert, taking a private excursion to Leiden, a cooking lesson at an organic farm, or seeing a weekly cheese market in a cheese-producing town such as Alkmaar, Edam or Gouda.

This tour can easily be extended to include Jewish touring in other destinations in Europe.
