You really need to visit this part of Amsterdam. It's the older and nicer. Good suggestion! Have fun!

Maybe the best example of architecture and canal life in AMS. Better make this a part of your visit or you will regret.

It's a great region to get lost in - the architecture and the canals are the most typical you can get, and it's very beautiful. There are lots os cafes, bars and restaurants to sit and relax in the Amsterdam energy :)

It's lovely to walk around this neighborhood and enjoy the sight of the canals, the shady trees, the nice boutiques and restaurants. Just stroll around, get lost and enjoy!

We have walked for two half days through the Jordaan area and found it very interesting. Another half day tomorrow. Lots of interesting shops, eateries and bars. Had lunch today in the Andaz hotel as we wanted to see the Marcel Wanders designs. The old...More

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.

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.

I just st saw this, I hope you are still planning. I did not stay on a houseboat due to the size of my party (9 people). But I was impressed with the boats I saw for rent. Try AirBNB (not a fan anymore but had lots of... More

Yes this section of the city is more quiet. It is close to several attractions. But you can also catch the tram which can take you to many parts of the city. Also close enough to Centraal Station where you can catch train to... More

Definitely use the boat tours, there are many that give access to parts of the city you do not see from the canal side and give a completely different perspective to Amsterdam. We chose one from the Tripadvisor reviews and... More
