Overview

Amsterdam’s prosperity in the Golden Age would have been unimaginable without the contribution made by the Jewish community. When the Portuguese Synagogue opened in the heart of Amsterdam in 1675, it was at the largest synagogue in the world.
Embark on an audio tour of this magnificently preserved structure, located in central Amsterdam's Jewish Cultural Quarter, and learn about the city’s Jewish history and heritage. View its large stone pillars, white plastered walls and dark furnishings bathed in light that shines through 72 cast-iron windows. This still-active synagogue has been without electric light or heating since it was built, with the only artificial light coming from the 1000 candles in its brass chandeliers.
Browse a unique collection of ceremonial objects made of silver, gold, silk and brocade in the synagogue’s treasure chambers, and visit the oldest functioning Jewish library in the world, Ets Haim.
You ticket also includes admission to several other main sites in the Jewish Cultural Quarter, including the Jewish Historical Museum, the National Holocaust Memorial and the National Holocaust Museum. It’s valid for exactly one month.
