We have always rented an apartment in Jordaan (usually on Prinsengracht) for our Amsterdam visits - it is just so incredibly attractive, close to the interesting things we like (eg. Nine Streets and other shops, bars, restaurants). We seldom stray far outside the area in our 4/5 day stays. Walking back at night, with all the interior lights on, is... More

Jordaan used to be where the lower working class lived, now it is one of the higher-end, more cultural parts of Amsterdam. I chose to walk around Amsterdam during my four day trip and found myself coming back to the Jordaan area for food, shops, and general sightseeing. It was also my favorite part of a biking tour that I... More

Excellent lady with her own label who has garments made for her in Thailand. Flea market in the end square. Specialist vintage sunglasses dealers. Not cheap but good stock.

This is really the heart of Amsterdam. Beautiful Dutch houses and the canal, I loved it there. I used to bring my lunch and eat in one of the benches next to the canal when the weather is nice.

A charming, quiet neighborhood with excellent bars and restaurants. There are interesting shops, and even though you're not interested in shopping, the pleasant walk justifies the visit.

Around every corner there is another surprise. Take your time and let the area soak in to your soul, enjoy the canals, the Noordmarkt and the 'brown bars'. If you do nothing else in this city, find an hour for the Jordaan.

This area of Amsterdam is much quieter than other areas of the city. It is clean and tidy and very picturesque. Little shops and café/bars are dotted along the route and no smell of the wacky backy!

In May of 2014 we stayed for three nights in the Jordaan. There are a multitude of houseboats moored along the canals and we stayed in one courtesy of AirBnB. We immediately felt like locals and discovered local restaurants, markets and a wonderful cheese shop. This area is a photographers delight.
