Away from the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam, Jordan is more quiet and quaint. My friend and I walked around Jordaan after visiting the Anne frank house. There are cute shops and little cafes you can stop by and have a coffee in.

Great place to wander and experience Amsterdam's more bohemian side. Many small shops and a market should you so wish.

I really liked the Jordaan kwartier very much - not so crowded with tourists as well + beautiful sights and cozy cafés

We walked through this area on the way to Noordermarkt. The houses are very picturesque and the shops and cafes are nice.

Jordaan is quite a nice area to visit, especially in a sunny day. If not, there's plenty of cafes where you can go to enjoy apple cake and more. In summer you can also find nice ice-cream places...

We stayed in The Jordann Area by recommendation from a friend. Good recommendation. This was right up our alley for what we like to do when we travel... There are tons of little cafes, bars, boutiques and there is a market on Saturday and Monday that we walked through for both days. It is definitely a hipster / trendsetter neighborhood.... More

We had local guide that showed us this area in Amsterdam. Cozy narrow brick buildings in colours from the rainbow. Interesting story around why some houses are painted black. Well worth a goggle search to find out. Bring map when you walk around in Amsterdam or have loads of data on your mobile phone 😊

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood 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.
