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.

It takes a beautiful afternoon to stroll through Jordaans streets and take in the sights. It is extremely charming and beautiful, with flowers and picturesque canals everywhere.

I think the area is best enjoyed by foot, stopping at the various cafes and shops which are surprisingly cheap. Stay away from the bike paths, it helps to look left and right many times before running across the road because bikes appear out of nowhere.

We stayed here for a week and it is brilliant! Like another world, Quite unique. 50 word requirement again - just go and walk around if you're not staying.

you can walk to this location. it is where the Ann Frank house is located. We didn't want to pay and stand in line to go and see the inside so we just walked to it, took a picture outside. Nice beautiful day, no need to go and spend it standing in line to go see a house!!

....for a relaxing night with the locals in the Jordaan! We had a great time singing along with the Dutch songs and we blended in with the locals without any problems.
