Owner description: This charming neighborhood is Amsterdam's Greenwich Village, with its narrow alleys, leafy canals lined with 17th-century houses, quirky specialty shops, cafes and designer boutiques.

The Jordaan is the best part of Central Amsterdam. While most visitors spent there time in and around Dam Square, Red Light District, etc I felt as if I had this place between myself and the locals. You do not need a map, just wonder the streets, visit the small cafes and eat in the local restaurants. The architecture is what you would expect but with the never ending canals, bridges and small, quaint side streets it is a wonderful area.

the combination of shops, cafés, art, restaurants...things and places you don't expect or haven't thought of...with the historic atmosphere of the buildings...you need to experience it :)

A great area - like a village within the city. Close to everything but quiet. Part of the old area of Amsterdam and very picturesque

Great neighborhood to walk. Safe with great views. Would have loved to spend more time here. Will definitely go back and enjoy when the weather is more warmer.
