The trendy district Jordaan
Jordaan is a former working-class neighborhood that has developed into a trendy area. Some of the houses here have courtyards called “Hofjes”, which are freely accessible and beautiful to look at. The Jordaan district has many canals, which is why there are so many houseboats here. Otherwise, Jordaan is characterized by its narrow streets and many small, unusual shops. From the Jordaan quarter the 9 Straatjes, nine picturesque streets in which there are many small boutiques and nice restaurants, branch off. However, living in this beautiful area has its price. Ever since the district was gentrified, rental prices have risen.
