Amsterdam city guide

Amsterdam - Jordaan & the West (Chapter)

10th Edition May 2016

This is the Jordaan & the West chapter from Lonely Planet’s Amsterdam guidebook.

The Jordaan was once a rough, densely populated volksbuurt (district for the common people) until the mid-20th century. Today, this neighbourhood is a curiously enchanting mix of a gritty, hard-drinking, leftist character and a revitalised, trend-conscious sheen.

  • losing yourself in the labyrinth of narrow streets and charming canals while walking through the Jordaan, before spending the evening in the neighbourhood’s atmospheric brown cafés (bars)
  • maps
  • learning about the fascinating history and production of the country’s favourite bloom at the Amsterdam Tulip Museum
  • transport
  • listening to rare jazz and classical tunes play on vintage pianolas at the Pianola Museum
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
