Essential: Jordaan Festival
Famous for: his latest culinary trend
In three words: sophisticated, mixed, theatrical
The Jordaan district is the city's most famous one, and perhaps the Nederlands’ best known. It has nothing really special, if not its atmosphere, its cafes ... It is simply said in this area you hear the bells of Westernkerk exactly as Anne Frank told in her diary.
HISTORY: It grows in the seventeenth century to house the working classes and soon becomes the center of the radical political left and the occasional riot. In 1970 a restoration project of the many ruined buildings began which led to the current new face of Jordaan, a privileged students and young professionals district.
ATMOSPHERE: Jordaan is particularly loved for its fresh air, art galleries and organic coffee, children's parks and trendy restaurants. Innovative, fashionable without being trendy, it offers authentic charm mixed with bohemian glory. The atmosphere is completely different from the old town and no doubt enjoyable for those looking for apartments Amsterdam.
PLACES: There are no main sights particularly famous in the neighborhood, but the area is filling up more and more with local cafes and restaurants that are really worth. Also there are a lot of markets (biological) that alternate every day of the week.
