The Jordaan, most famous neighbourhoods in Amsterdam

The Jordaan is located just west of the Amsterdam Central Station. The area is around the western side of Canal Ring between Prinsengracht and Lijnbaansgracht before ending at Leidsegracht. North of the Rozengracht is the more touristy and commercial section of this neighbourhood. The Jordaan offers a mix of old fashioned residents and young families. You can see a lot of ‘bakfietsen’ (cargo bicycles) in this area. The Jordaan is full of great restaurants and traditional brown cafés. If you really want to feel the athmosphere of the Jordaan, you should visit the annual Jordaan Festival.
