If you want to get away from the tourist hotspots and the bustle of the centre then take a wander around the Jordaan - go on a Saturday to take in the market. What a fantastic array of produce / goods/ bric a brac on sale.

Attractive area of central Amsterdam just to the west of the main shopping area. Traditional looking buildings, cafes and small shops. Canal side walks.

Great place to walk round and gain a sense of the real amsterdam without the tourists. Esecially in the spring but as the streets are long can get a bit breezy. Local bars and cafes abound dont hesitate to just try one on impulse.

The Jordaan is my preferred area for a casual stroll in Amsterdam. Although physically close, it is a world away from the bustle and hustle of the central core of Amsterdam. Its geography is formed by narrow streets (former canals that were filled up a long time ago) and intersecting parallel canals, offering surprises every other corner. It alternates residential...

Enjoyed our walks around this area, Amsterdam people are very polite and friendly and it has a 'safe' feel certainly during daylight hours.

Loved walking through this area of the city, plenty of variety. Are both of our meals in The Jordaan. Lots of little pricey bespoke shops lovely to look at. Slightly less grotty than the centre. If trouble with walking quite uneven footpaths and always need to be on lookout for cyclists and mopeds travelling fast. Lots of attractions and museums... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
