I love walking around here and just sitting down with a hot chocolate watching the world go by on their bikes. Really is a lovely party of Amsterdam - walk around and loose yourself within the lovely dutch streets and take it all in as you hit the quiet areas

This is a must see for your trip to Amsterdam! The Jordaan is a beautiful place and has so much culture throughout it. There are so many different things to see and you could easily spend days juat trying to get round it all. I would certainly recommend spend at least half a day/day looking around and absorbing the sites.... More

Lovely area to stay whilst visiting Amsterdam. Easy to get anywhere by foot, bike or tram. Lots of nice eateries, friendly cafes/bars and some interesting shops. A very local vibe and not too touristy.

We rented an apartment in the Jordaan and it was the perfect location for us - easy to walk to the canal boat at Anne Frank Huis, near great restaurants and coffee shops, easy access to other sights, and still a homey-feeling neighborhood. Very safe

Loved this neighborhood with funky stores and many many restaurants that all look delicious. Didn't feel touristy and really enjoyed getting lost on the beautiful streets. Not that interesting to my kids who are under 12. More for those who like poking around at stores and eating/drinking.

Staying in Jordaan

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.
