“NIce quiet neighborhood to walk around in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Rick Steves has a free android app with a walking tour of this neighborhood. Use this app to get there and learn some facts then just walk around the canals and enjoy

“Beautiful Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a beautiful neighborhood in Amsterdam, full of lovely cafes, restaurants and restaurants. It feels very far away from the craziness of Central Station and Dam Square. We loved walking all around Jordaan, day and night.

“Genuine Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This area is very old Amsterdam in my opinion, nice area that isn't ruined with modern design. I think it's a wonderful area to visit. Lots of places to eat and chill out while people watching.

“Photo on every corner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

That typical Amsterdam view of a long canal with a bridge in the distance covered in bikes and flowers? Well the Jordaan is that image on every corner. Cafes, bars and restaurants everywhere!
