  • The Jordaan: is a unique piece of town. Cheerful straight-by-sea mentality, characteristic buildings, cosy cafes, in short Mokums (or can't you say that here). Nowadays they are busy with backpackers but they still only walk on the phone to cookie and walk fast. Ff relaxing

  • We passed through Jordaan in November, so the weather in Amsterdam was not the hottest. Despite this, we enjoyed it and enjoyed the visit to the fullest. Born as a working-class neighborhood, it has transformed into a trendy neighborhood, a bit "hipster" in recent years. It's also great for taking some photos along the canals.
