Artsy neighborhood with plenty of cafes, restaurants, shopping and beautiful scenery. Walking distance to many attractions and quite safe. Best neighborhood in Amsterdam in opinion!

“Jordaan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Still a charming, diverse area [30 years since my last visit] and one of the few areas that has kept its character. A delight to walk around and explore.

“A beautiful area of real Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Plan to stroll around the Jordaan and get lost. Check out the hidden courtyards of the beautiful 17th century alms houses. Respect the residents - people still live in them - but do check out these lovely tranquil hidden gardens.

“A good neighborhood to discover, there's something for everyone.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We did a small walking tour based on the one here. It was raining heavily so took our time as we ran for cover every few minutes. A good few attractions but the best parts were the streets by the canal, nice places to sit and eat n drink , and some fab design shops for home products and clothes on Haarlemstraat. A must do in Amsterdam.
