Architecture and history

Beautiful part of town if you like architecture and history. Near Waterlooplein you wander in an old part of the city. Just look up for inspiration.

This area used to be Jewish and now none are there, except for brass plates on the sidewalks every so often, like in Berlin, marking the Jews who once lived there until they were taken away to be murdered. Strange, but visit so the history is remembered and the memories are retained.

Other reviewers have seemed surprised that this is not now a Jewish neighborhood. Keep in mind that this name originated in the 17th century. In the 1940's the Germans and their local collaborators emptied out this neighborhood, as well as many others throughout Europe and elsewhere, and sent the residents to concentration camps from which very few returned. So it... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
