This great neighbourhood de Jordaan loves music from Amsterdam, and in the summer is also the Jordaan Festival celebrating this love for music. During the weekend I like to walk on Elandsgracht for weekly shopping. .

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
