Rembrandt my great passion, in my walking tours in Amsterdam, in my tours in the Rijksmusem as well in my lectures. Anywhere in Amsterdam you will meet Rembtandt, where his clients lived for which he made those wonderful paintings. His great love Saskia, that smile. She sadly died in the year of his greatest triumph, the Night Watch. The drawings and etchings of the city made ​​after the death of Saskia provide a good picture of Rembrandt in Amsterdam in the 17th, the golden age of Amsterdam.

The former Jewish Quartert. A walking tour in Amsterdam.

 Jewish Amsterdam as it was before the 2nd world war is no more. Of the more than 85,000 Jews who lived there no more then 5.000 returned to their "Mokum" after Worl War 2. Nevertheless, you can still experience the feeling of the past in this walk through Amsterdam. The "Snoge" (the Portuguese Synagogue) and the "Schulen" (Jewish Historical Museum) are still to visit. The "Hollandse Schouwburg" for me more impressive than the Anne Frank House, the Auswitz monument in the Wertheim Park and the Resistance museum. I will tell you all about the former old Jewish quarter of Amsterdam.
