16/26.- Amsterdam, Jordaan


Once a district for the poor, the Jordaan is today a very praised neighborhood home to many art galleries, specialty shops and restaurants. Markets are held regularly at Noordermarkt, the Westerstraat (the Lapjesmarkt textile market) and Lindengracht. Also located on the edge of this area is the Anne Frank House on the Prinsengracht. Rembrandt spent the last years of his life here, on the Rozengracht, and was buried in the Westerkerk. On the northern west part of the district is the Haarleemerstraat, also a very nice and busy street with a great diversity of stores, bars and cafés.
