I just realized I failed to review this wonderful "walk"! The rain was relentless that day but I would do this RAIN or SHINE! The "hidden" details of Amsterdam's WWII past will not be forgotten. THANK YOU, PETER!

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

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.
