The area is one of the oldest in Amsterdam where the sailors come for beer and prostitues after the long journeys. A lot of canals, a lot of nice cafes and choices of food from all over the world.

The Jordaan section of Amsterdam is worth exploring for many reasons. One it is very much a living community so you will find fewer tourists. The cafes and restaurants are all small boutique places with interesting menus and friendly owners and staff. The architecture here...More

This area is much nicer than the area around the Red Light District and the train station. Quieter, cleaner, nice shops and restaurants.

This area is amazing! It is a nice and quiet area that is close to the rowdy and more fun area of Amsterdam. Best of the both worlds!

The Jordaan offers great shopping and cafés, and is the neighborhood which has the most beautiful architecture, in my opinion. An absolute must-visit!

Not very touristy, with loads of little cafes, bars, speciality shops and locals. We found this at the end of our holiday but if were returning would definitely stay in this area. Beautiful!

I was told by many locals to be sure to just take time to "walk around Amsterdam". This is an area I highly recommend. The canals are lined with interesting house boats, homes and shops.

Our hotel concierge recommended this area and it was a good tip. Although residential, there are lots of shops and restaurants, I suspect where the real residents live and just enough away from the touristy area.

I very much enjoy the Jordaan. The streets are quiet, with great views of the Western Church from some streets, and is mainly not filled with Damrak style tourists.

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.
