  DE JORDAAN AMSTERDAM....
by eden_teuling
 
 

This is the district between the BROUWERSGRACHT and the ELANDGRACHT and is perhaps the most famous neighbourhood of Amsterdam, apart from the Red-Light District.....

Its old houses and canals provide the visitor with a taste, a touch of typical AMSTERDAM.

Once it was a working-class area but now it is very sought-after, expecially the expensive converted warehouses.

The JORDAAN is now inhabited by a colourful mixture of the natives, the "JORDANEZEN", students and well-to-do businessmen.
The 17th Century district with its own traditions and its own informal and relaxed atmosphere has many narrow streets and picturesque canals.

The Jordaan offers a wealth of unique SHOPPING opportunities....it has many fashion boutiques, small speciality stores and indoor markets, among which DE LOOIER. This is the largest permanent indoor ART & ANTIQUES center of the Netherlands with over 85 stalls.

Close to the WESTERTOREN on the PRINSENGRACHT you will find the ANNE FRANK HOUSE MUSEUM: follow this LINK , which will take you there immediately!

There aren't many spectacular major MUSTS here but THE JORDAAN itself is remarkable!
