Wander this maze of lovely streets to find lots of interesting bars, restaurants and shops. Difficult to navigate without a map as every street seems to look alike but well worth a detour.

Full of great cafés and restaurants and interesting salons and galleries of wonderful and weird things. A visual delight, the place is buzzing and all set against the backdrop of beautiful canals and small winding streets. Lots of character and interesting people. So close to the centre as well.

Really enjoyed walking through this area. The houses and architecture is absolutely amazing. You also pass by it on the boat tours that you can take through Amsterdam. So if you have an opportunity definitely go

Because my hotel was not far from this area, we spent quite a lot of time in the cafes, bars, shops etc. this was quite new to me even though I have been to Amsterdam many times...and I liked it a lot. A very nice discovery for me on this visit to the city.

We enjoyed combing through the small streets. Quite a local feel with some parts looking lost in time. Bought distinctive pieces in a new shop "Brainy Days" with excellent range of random items, jewelry and leather totes and bags,, most of which were locally sourced. The find made our walk complete.

Stayed in this neighborhood and ate there twice. Much quieter and chic than the other parts of the city.

Need to visit. Look for the Winkel 43, close to a church. Best apple pie ever! Take care to walk around without a map. Everything look so the same (houses, streets, channels, stores, etc). So I got lost some times :D
