Jordaan

Recommended
An obvious area for development with the cutting of the four central canals, Jordaan sprang up in the 17C and was home to working people and immigrant groups. Regenerated in the second half of the 20C, it is today a delightful network of little streets (filled-in former canals) and canals named after flowers. Its atmosphere and populist feel draws students and bohemians to live here.
