The Jordaan neighborhood it's a great attraction to explore a part of Amstrdam downtown. I prefer to visit this place in the day rather than the night for watching and enjoy the views and the contraction of houses. Recommended for everyone.

We walked in to this place and saw the mentioned building structures but our more favorite part was the local happening streets in this area which was much calmer than the Dam Square night life and definitely gave you the feels of uber cool community. The little shops were quirky and decked up pretty for christmas! Loved being in this... More

Lots of interesting shops and places to eat plus good street markets. Always fun to wander around and drop into a brown cafe for a drink or simple food.

The area of Jordaan is one of the most trendy, traditional and exciting neighbourhoods of Amsterdam, with canals and narrow streets full of shops, cafés and restaurants in a pleasant atmosphere just off the buzz of the city centre. It's worth a visit for a stroll, and if I ever return to Amsterdam I'll also try to find a place... More

Well worth wandering around the streets on the banks of the canals here, the architecture continually provides colour, shape and timeless design. Wonderful places to stop and eat or drink coffee and many interesting shops. Also great seen from a boat

Amsterdam is a very diverse city and has wide array of neighborhood to visit. The Jordaan had a number of very nice shops and restaurants and provides a great contrast to the city center

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.
