Download the eBook version of Lonely Planet's Jordaan & the West PDF chapter from the Amsterdam guidebook

Amsterdam - Jordaan & the West

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.

You can pick and choose from complete guides and individual chapters, and download them to any device you like.
