Visit the Jordaan

The Jordaan is probably one of Amsterdam’s most famous neighborhoods. It is full of cute shops, cafés and restaurants. The Jordaan was built in the early 17th century to house the working class and immigrants. To this day, the neighborhood in Amsterdam truly embodies the “live and let live” mentality of the city. You will see people of all walks of life living together in perfect harmony. The district is known for its beautiful houses, nice restaurants and original shops. When in Amsterdam, it is a must to stroll through the little streets and walk by the canals.

What to do in the Jordaan?

So, what to do in the Jordaan? This small piece of the city is packed with cool things to do and to see. Please check out this page before heading in to the area, you wouldn’t want to miss anything of this typical Amsterdam neighborhood. Venus & Adonis is one of the most attractive steak restaurants in Amsterdam. This eclectically designed establishment recently opened in a former seventeenth-century shop on Prinsengracht, on the outskirts of the De Jordaan. Are you in the mood for something a bit more exciting? The Time Trip escape rooms have also opened its doors in this iconic part of town. A ticking time bomb in the middle of the jungle or a wizard locking everyone in the castle? No matter which one of the rooms you choose, your intelligence and nerves of steel will be tested. End your stroll through the district with a cocktail at Vesper. The 007 fans have probably guessed it, but for those of you in the dark: this bar was named after the only woman James Bond ever loved. There really is no better place to drink your martini…
