That is all what you can read on the monument, special made in 1986 to remember this "jewish corner" Exactly what the other reviewer said, no jewish at all. You can find cafes, coffee shop, flee market, restaurants, good record shop, tattoo, a warehouse, drugstore,...More

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
