This is what you think and dream of before you come to Amsterdam (believe me it is NOT the Red Light district). The canals, beautiful bridges, the shops and cafes. The Westerstraat shopping and the Norrdermarket are wonderful, but explore the side streets, as well....More

We just peddled bikes through this amazing neighbourhood and it's one of those unique places where there is so much to see and do. Fantastic.

Forget the traditional tourist areas, if u only see one small part of Amsterdam, make sure you head straight to Jordaan district. Great bars and restaurants, especially in good weather.

Idillic Amsterdam. So cute and fairytale like. Too many shops to list. This is where we always stay when we are in Amsterdam - we LOVE the Jordaan.

If you have some spare time, or if you are on a canal ride, take a stroll or cruise in the historic Jordaan neighborhood. There you will find the oldest of the row houses, some tilting to one side or the other, most well kept...More

Beautiful area with lovely homes. The color palette is pleasing. Took so many photos. Spent a lot of time walking in the area at different times of the day as the changing light added to its beauty.

Jordaan is one of the nicest areas to explore. The picture you get when you think of Amsterdam - it's here. It's got all the little shops, boutiques and restaurants that you'd expect in an area like this. I shop in this area frequently and...More

One of the most picturesque areas in Amsterdam. Full of old homes and businesses. The neighborhood is bustling with both tourists and locals. Lots of shopping and people watching opportunities. The canal cruises take you right through this area. Lots of bicycle traffic!

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.

Agree with Kile T. It's right near the tram and some of the sights, but quiet, lovely and residential.

Definitely use the boat tours, there are many that give access to parts of the city you do not see from the canal side and give a completely different perspective to Amsterdam. We chose one from the Tripadvisor reviews and... More

Ask in the cafe / bars around Jordaan / Brauersgracht. The people who work in these cafes are mostly local and very helpful. Try Cafe Tuin or De Prinze Prinzengracht near Brauersgracht, or Koffie House Den Hoek also on... More
