Jordaan, Amsterdam Overview

Popularly known as the district of the working class, Jordaan is now one of the busiest districts in Amsterdam. Home to many art galleries, antique shops and fabulous bars and restaurants, a little walk through Jordaan is sure to make your day.

Jordaan was constructed in the early 17th century, primarily to house the influx of the new workers that had come into the city. However, as time progressed and populations increased, the living conditions severely deteriorated and the prospect of demolishing the district was being discussed. The district was eventually saved by the 1960's monument conservation laws and today, provides an example of the vibrant and diverse cultures coexisting in the city of Amsterdam. It is known for it's independent art galleries, housing some amazing work by local artists looking to gain a following, and there's no scarcity of cosy cafes, fashionable restaurants and happening bars and other hang out spots in Noordermarkt, and around Westerstraat and Rozengracht. It also houses the famous Amsterdam Tulip museum.
