Cutest neighborhood not far from our hotel. We ate at some amazing restaurants here. It was so cute and very clean

We found this from an online list of what to do in Amsterdam. We enjoyed the walk through the streets. Less busy than a few streets away in downtown Amsterdam. A little classier perhaps. Artistic. Worth the walk, especially if looking for a temporary break.

We came to this area on several occasions during our five day Amsterdam trip. We loved walking each street, browsing at the shops, homes along the side streets, and cafes and restaurants. The Saturday market is definitely worth a few hours of your time. And...More

We selected a HomeAway apartment in the district since it is centrally located and near the canals with plenty of restaurants, food outlets, and quaint streets. We also choose a food tour that stopped in 8 different locations to get an idea of local cuisine

Gorgeous neighbourhood with stunning views up and down the canal. The area is full of quirky shops. This is an excellent area to take photographs of the stunning architecture.

The Jordaan is loaded with history and the streets are beautiful. Take a walking tour with an expert or read up on the neighborhood in advance so you don't miss anything. Watch for the Stone Plaques on the houses, learn about how and why the...More

The Jordaan is located across a canal from the busier central part of town. Gives one a chance to see a real neighborhood, close to, but away from the commercial centre.

When standing on the bridges looking down the waterway you cannot help but imagine what it was like many years ago. You have houseboats along the way and then the historic buidlings next to the water.. some are leaning from issues underneath and some are...More

We were staying in the red light area, very noisy, gritty,dirty, but so vibrant. Feeling like a little change of scenery we took a tram ride then walked through The Jordann. This is a much quieter place, mostly homes of the local people and an...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.

Sorry but I am not sure.. Maybe one of the romantic tours because there were smaller boats moored along the canals.

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
