Your experience


From the second half of the 17th century, Amsterdam Jews were allowed to build synagogues that were visible from the street. This decision changed the appearance of the whole city! Walk through the light-flooded halls of the Portuguese synagogue (also called Esnoga), admire the intricate woodcarvings and feel the sandy ground under your feet. Your audio guide will inform you about the context during the walk.

The beautifully preserved interior of the Portuguese synagogue is a wonder in itself. Apart from the architecture and the wooden floors, there is still no modern heating or lighting, so entering this building means a walk through a magical wonderland by candlelight and a return to the Golden Age.

In the 17th century, Dutch trade as well as science, military and art were among the most famous in the world - that is why it was called the Golden Age. Until the Holocaust, the Jews made up 10% of the population of Amsterdam, many of whom considered this city a refuge from persecution in Spain and Portugal.

The Portuguese synagogue was one of the largest buildings in Amsterdam at that time. Today it is one of only five synagogues in the world with a sandy floor (to absorb dust, moisture and sound)

This ticket includes admission to the adjacent Jewish Historical Museum and the nearby Hollandsche Schouwburg (National Holocaust Memorial), so that you can get good and true information about all Jewish things.
