Jordaan & the West
A former workers' quarter, the Jordaan teems with cosy pubs, galleries and markets crammed into a grid of tiny lanes. It's short on conventional sights, but it's a wonderfully atmospheric place for an aimless stroll. It abuts the West, industrial badlands that have transformed into an innovative cultural hub.
These are our favorite local haunts, touristy spots, and hidden gems throughout Jordaan & the West.
