Our review of De Jordaan
Nice mix in this district
The Jordan iis an old working-class neighborhood which is now pretty hip. The small houses and narrow streets are home to many café’s, restaurants, special and ordinary shops, ateliers and a lot of residents. This mix with a range of traditional and hip, young and old, trendy eateries and pubs is amusing to walk through.
Previously poor, now becoming richer
Historically, the Jordan a real working class neighborhood where poverty reigned. At the end of last century, this neighborhood has become trendy and now there live more and more young and wealthy locals. This has affected the supply of restaurants and shops.
Atmosphere and not touristy
The Jordan is not touristy and there you can stroll peacefully to enjoy the atmosphere. You will find in the Jordan actually no notable tourist attractions. The real attraction is the Amsterdam atmosphere with many canals, streets, workers houses and photogenic vistas.
