We walked around theJordan area and although there were some interesting, quirky shops but I expected more from reading the reviews. It’s a lovely, characterful quiet residential area though with nice buildings and well worth a wander

The Jordaan is outside the main 'Ring' Canals, so not many tourists get there, but it's a nice mix of canal-type houses and small, local shops. It tells you more about how the [well-off] Dutch live in Amsterdam, than the touristy centre.

This is a beautiful district and seems to be less touristy than the other parts of the city. It's definitely worth a stroll.

Pretty canals, less touristy than the rest of town. Great market on Saturdays that’s an interesting mix of local wares and farmers market for residents. Was able to buy some local ceramics as well as a Nutella stroopwafel

De Jordaan is one of those areas you MUST see when visiting Amsterdam. Some of the elder people are complaining that the area is not the area it usually was back in the days. This may be true, although it did not harm any of...More

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.

You can actually rent a boat yourself and go through the canals. I believe it's about 40 Euro an hour.

Yes it would! The neighborhood just next to Jordaan is called "the Nine Streets," and you can get a good idea of what's going on in the neighborhoods by taking a look at their webpages, which include a lot of articles... More
