Jordaan Quarter Walking Tour

Jordaan Quarter Walking Tour Stroll the streets of the Amsterdam's Jordaan Quarter on a two-hour guided walking tour and gain some insight into the early history surrounding this typical Dutch region. You'll be amazed by the transformation Jordaan underwent from 17th century industrial working-class to modern day, hip and high-class.

Built in 1612, the Jordaan Quarter was a blue-collar neighborhood for immigrants. At the beginning of the seventies a total renovation was undertaken, drawing in an eclectic mix of artists, students and young entrepreneurs. As a result, the Jordaan of today is a thriving pocket of activity full of restaurants, cozy pubs and shops housed in terraces.

You'll travel back to Amsterdam's Golden Age as your English-speaking guide points out various buildings, beautiful courtyards, intricate canals, houseboats, cafes and art galleries. Explore the homes of famous painters and writers and enjoy the friendly local atmosphere on your moderately paced walking tour through Amsterdam's Jordaan quarter.
