My impression of Jordaan is that it's a place with fun shops and good restaurants. I found many nice places to visit during my holiday. Also a safe area to visit. I travel by myself and felt comfortable and safe after dark.

Great bars, restaurants and especially the cheese museum. Street market has lots of individual foods and handicrafts. Look across at the queue round the block for Anne Frank Museum; decide 'another day'; and stroll off to a real cosy, neighbourhood cafe.

This neighbourhood features many great restaurants and hip bars. Wander along the maze-like streets to get the real feel of Amsterdam.

A perfect area to visit if you don't want the bustle of the centre of the city but do want excellent restaurants and quiet cafes and bars.

This area was a joy to visit. We got away from "touristville" and into something which felt far more authentic. We were not far from the main city centre but the atmosphere was completely different - less frenetic. It was great to escape the chain stores and see small independent shops and businesses. Glad we made the effort.
