Fancy Renting an A​partment in Jordaan?

An Expat's Quick Guide to The Jordaan

The popular and trendy J​ordaan ​is one of the most famous districts in Amsterdam. A vibrant community spirit of old remains as its youthful residents enjoy a number of quality restaurants, galleries, and independent shops.

Beginning just west of Centraal Station, Jordaan arches around the Canal Ring between Prinsengracht and Lijnbaansgracht before it ends at the Leidsegracht.

The north is typically more of a tourist haunt, while the south is a little quieter, ideal for young professionals and those with young families.

Traditional bars such as Café Nol have a reputation for being the home of a good old fashioned Dutch knees up, with plenty of singing thrown in for good measure.

And if you enjoy that, then the Jordaan folk festival is not to be missed!

The mazy streets lead to hidden gems, with courtyards to explore, art galleries to visit, and some of the most interesting outdoor markets in the city. Browse for nicknacks at the Noordermarkt flea market or pick up some fresh produce at an organic farmers' market.

From the Noordermarkt to the Westerstraat and Rozengracht, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to hip and cool bars and restaurants. In fact, if you take a walk down the side‐streets south of Westerstraat you’ll happen upon some of the city’s most popular and acclaimed eateries.
