The Jewish Quarter, just one square kilometre wide, is located in the centre of Amsterdam south of Nieuwmarkt.

The quarter contains numerous monuments including the Jewish Historical Museum, housed inside the imposing Portuguese Synagogue, a magnificent building constructed in 1675, the Hollandsche Schouwburb, i.e. the Holocaust Memorial, and the Children’s Museum.

Besides the important museums, the Rembrandt House Museum is also located here, the Jewish quarter is famous for the Waterlooplein flea market.

The Jewish population has been settled in this part of Amsterdam since the beginning of the 17th century and when Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands in 1940, more than 60,000 Jews lived here.

Modern Jewish life in Amsterdam is concentrated in Zuid, the southern part of the city, and in the outlying areas of Buitenveldert and Amstelveen.

Numerous cafés, delicatessens and kosher restaurants can be found throughout Amsterdam, including the Sal Meijer Sandwich near the RAI convention centre, Ha Carmel and Golan.
