Over the past 3 days, we have found ourselves in the area of The Jordaan. It's such a peaceful reprieve from the more touristy areas of Amsterdam. Walking along the canals and having a beer at one of the cafes is a daily must!

Maybe we didn't walk deep enough into it or maybe we were just too tired, but we didn't really see anything to Ooh and Aah about it in the Jordaan. We saw Anne Frank's house which was memorable. We also made a quick visit into...More

This is a lovely area to discover, tucked between canals with second hand clothing and specialty stores all around, Some fantastic small restaurants and cafes.

Just walk around long enough and you’ll find yourself on The Jordan. This area pretty much typifies Amsterdam, with 16th century buildings that, if you look closely, are slightly angled out so that moving cargo to the upper levels.

This is a lovely district, hinting of life in 1700s Amsterdam. Narrow streets, unique shops and eateries, architecture of old. Not a touristy area, this is where locals live and do business. Quiet, shade, and great opportunities for strolling photographers to find pictures.

The Jordaan is by far and away my favourite part of Amsterdam. It’s got an ultra cool and trendy vibe and full of little ‘off the beaten track’ gems, where you can get nice food and nice beer without paying tourist premiums! Lovely place to...More

The area takes patience to enjoy as you will need to comb through all the streets to find the gems (shops or food stores) that appeal to you. But when the weather is nice, a stroll up/down, side to side, through the streets of Jordaan...More

As an Amsterdammer, I keep going back to Jordaan when I want to explore the art and sculpture scene in the city. This area has some of the best artist studios. Of course, there is an advantage when you head that way. You also get...More

Amsterdam is a mosaic of different pieces and the Jordaan must be visited to complete the picture of this interesting, vibrant and historic city. It is a complete contrast to the bustle, glitz and shock value many visitors find in the red light district. This...More

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.
