The Amsterdam’s most charming neighbourhood
Get lost in arty Jordaan
Many remark that Jordaan is the most attractive region of Amsterdam. Once a working-area, it has since been transformed into a trendy and artistic community and is now packed with cosy galleries, quaint gardens, antique stores as well as charming bars and local restaurants.
The Jordaan is also home to some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Anne Frank House, which is located on the Prinsengracht canal. Visitors can also explore the Westerkerk, a 17th-century church with a distinctive tower, or take a stroll through the famous Noordermarkt, which features a lively outdoor market on Saturdays.
With so much to see and do, you’ll definitely want to set aside an entire afternoon to delve deep into the history and culture of the unique and remarkable Jordaan.
