The Jordaan is famous for its eclectic collection of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Maze-like streets offer hidden courtyards, great restaurants and cafés (both traditional and trendy) and art galleries. There are also a host of wonderful markets to visit - in particular the Noordermarkt flea market on Monday mornings and the organic farmers' market on Saturdays.
The Brouwersgracht is in the quiet southern area of the Jordaan, with close access to all the highlights Amsterdam has to offer. The best shopping streets, with a host of specialty shops and lunch rooms (Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk), the Anne Frank house, Dam Square, the 9 streets (for some more great shopping) and the Noorder market are within walking distance. The Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk museum, Van Gogh museum, FOAM and Vondel Park are easy accessible by foot, bike or tram, which stops close by on the Haarlemmerplein.
If cycling is your thing, then perhaps you’d like to rent a bike – a great way to get an inside view of the city! We’ll gladly inform you about the possibilities. The best park in Amsterdam (Wester park) is also within walking distance. Here you can enjoy events like De Rollende Keukens (for the foodies amongst you), concerts, movies or just chill and have a coffee or a drink.
