Wonderful place for evening walks and talks. You can end up spending hours around the area without noticing. The stays around the area is expensive but plenty of options for snacks and drinks. Recommend the walking tour around the area.

You can enjoy at Jordaan a similar atmosphere, the view of caracteristical buildings but without the crownded streets of downtown. Certainly you will find a nice café. Experience the fleamarket and Boerenmarket, close to the noorderkerk (consult which days they are working). At the Westerstraat...More

Stroll around in a slower pace for that "movie feels" moment. :D Check out the small store in the corner of the street for some lovely stuff to bring home. :D

Quaint, old neighborhood with cafes, bars, and small shops. We arrived at a time when kids were just getting out of school--the activity was high and fun.

Beautiful architecture and a lovey walk in any season. A brief walk around also gives you a good understand on the history of the Netherlands and provides you with some good photographs

A beautiful area to enjoy a stroll and take in the unique and breathtaking sights. There are plenty of little shops, eateries and coffee shops if you fancy a pit stop.

Great neighborhood to just stroll, window shop, and pop into a bakery or coffeeshop. It’s always nice to get away from the hustle and bustle in the city center

Small winding streets like Alfama-Lissabon or Patershol-Gent; fun shopping little shops; cozy restaurants, brown pubs etc. Stroll around without a plan...

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
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
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.

You can actually rent a boat yourself and go through the canals. I believe it's about 40 Euro an hour.

Yes it would! The neighborhood just next to Jordaan is called "the Nine Streets," and you can get a good idea of what's going on in the neighborhoods by taking a look at their webpages, which include a lot of articles... More
