Since the 70's, the 'Jordaan' quarter developed from a seedy quarter to one of the most popular residential neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, where the middle class, many artists and students live a pleasent life. They meet each other at one of the many atmospheric restaurants, bars and shops.
The so called "Hofjes" are rally famous - groups of small houses built around patios for old or poor people, centuries ago. For example, the Claes Claeszhofje, Karthuizerhofje and Raepenhofje.
During our tour we will also see examples of the urban redevelopment, sometimes praised, sometimes criticised. Moreover, there are calm canals, an almost rural atmosphere, interesting gable stones and many, many pubs.
We could start at the central station. The advantage would be that the walk to the Jordaan quarter would lead us along the famous Grachtengürtel (canal belt) which was built in the 17th century. The belt is at least as interesting at the Jordaan quarter and is an UNESCO World Heritage. We will tell you about the history and some wonderful buildings.
