We walked and cycled through this area, and would love to have more time to wander around. Clean and safe to be in.

Tbe only reason why not moving here is sheer lack of cash or laziness. For any town-dweller who seeks to be living in a metropolis while needing some pace and inspiring atmosphere, the Jordaan is the ultimate locality to reside in. Still, an average red-light-and-beer-seeking briton may wonder what there is to seehere... well... you decide for yourself...

Very interesting area. We really enjoyed looking at all the structures. One suggestion, don't go on a weekend. The place was extremely crowded.

For those looking for something different from the mainstream shopping stores and dining places, Jordaan has lots to offer. Specialty shops, galleries, boutiques. Lots of "coffee shops", so read the signs carefully before going in to order your java. Don't miss the market on Saturday, plenty of dutch delicacies and cheeses, perfect to pick up items for a picnic. Set... More

This part of the Amsterdam City is really beautiful. I recommend you to go there if you have some time to see the little stores and places to eat cheap.

A more relaxed, less touristy neighbourhood in Amsterdam for those that would like to explore, shop, eat and experience the city without all the crowds and tourist hype.

This area in Amsterdam remains our favourite, independent retail and with bars and restaurants. Great for a casual stroll and meander. Full of character and stylish.

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.
