his area is one of the finest areas to walk around in Amsterdam - dee the lovely homes by the canals and many shops to browse in. You get the real feeling of Amsterdam here. There are many places to stop for coffee, drinks and a snack or dinner. Lovely - so many choices.

My wife and I first saw the lovely area from our water tour boat as we slowly motored along the waterway. The history of the area was fascinating and we really enjoyed the variety of home, both in and next to the canals. Not to be missed

This is a delightful area of Amsterdam - lots of typically Dutch architecture, quaint houses and gable ends all within a stones throw from the centre of Amsterdam's main streets. The canals are very pretty and the bridges and trees are festooned with bicycles everywhere. You could spend a very relaxing morning, afternoon or evening here and sample the delights... More

The Jordaan is absolutely beautiful and nothing but fascinating. The neighbourhood has existed since the 17th century and absolutely charming. The maze-like streets and hidden courtyards are so picturesque. One cannot miss the local cafes and the art galleries. Also some of the most scenic outdoor markets. The Noordermarkt has a flea market on Monday morning and organic farmers' market... More

We wandered around here last weekend on our second trip to Amsterdam. It's another, quiet, clean, newer looking area with some more great architecture.

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.
