See the magnificent Portuguese Synagogue. Its 17th-century interior is still fully intact and illuminated by hundreds of candles. Discover the Dockworker and the Auschwitz Monument, which are important symbols of the Jewish Quarter.

End your tour at the Waterlooplein Flea Market, immerse yourself in the local culture and, perhaps, buy some souvenirs that will remind you of your journey.
