Conveniently located right in central Amsterdam, Jordaan is one of the city's most important, and most interesting districts. Never short of things to do, it is the location of the famous Anne Frank house, where renowned holocaust victim Anne Frank hid from the Nazis during WWII.

Currently, the district is bustling with life, with tons of opportunities to visit one of its many specialty shops, soak in Dutch culture at an art gallery, or try some of the local delicacies at its street markets.
   
Prideful of its early 20th-century music culture, this central district also features wonderful music festivals and has scattered statues throughout, commemorating the likes of local hero and Dutch patriot Johnny Jordaan. Not dead, you can go check out Jordaan's lively modern music scene at many of its bars and club venues, these days mainly featuring alternative, punk and grunge music.

Practical Info

This highly accommodating and lively part of Amsterdam is quite easily navigated, and with hotels scattered about, there is no difficulty finding a place to stay close-by. Many travel by bicycle, however, trams number 13 and 17 both land right smack in the heart of the action, from other populated stops in the city. If all else fails, the Dutch are renowned English speakers and are generally more than happy to help out a lost traveler.
