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 hustle and bustle of this place is amazing!
Take in an early weekend morning and enjoy the waking of a city and tapping of market stalls.
Come here for the Royal celebrations (Kings Day now) at the end of April and you’ll see an ocean of orange with live bands, music and dancing.

Boutique cafes, bars, restaurants and shops the whole year round this really is the place to visit in Amsterdam.

Take a stroll around the Jordaan area just simply to get a feel for the friendly, local atmosphere, and the beautiful houses, gardens and surroundings. Great little local cafes on practically each corner add to this area's charm. I'd live here if I could!

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

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.

This is a lovely area which is well worth exploring. As well as being a residential area there are plenty of shops and cafes.
