Jordaan area guide
Discover restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs, nightlife and things to do in the Jordaan
Bordered by Brouwersgracht, Prinsengracht, Leidsegracht and Lijnbaansgracht, the Jordaan is arguably Amsterdam's most charming neighbourhood and the location of many excellent galleries (including the likes of Vassie and Torch). Working-class stalwarts rub shoulders with affluent newcomers in an area that, while lacking the grandiose architecture of the canals, wants for nothing in character. The Jordaan has no major sights; it's a place in which you stumble across things. The area north of the shopping-dense Rozengracht, the Jordaan's approximate mid-point, is picturesque, whereas the area to the south is more commercial.
