The Amsterdam canal district: where it all happens!

Wonderful that you’re going to Amsterdam! We can only say it’s a brilliant choice. Just make sure you’re not missing out on the best feature: the canals. These make Amsterdam truly beautiful.

And if you really want to show off with some world-class Instagram pictures, then make sure you sleep, dine and wine in the Amsterdam canal district. Nothing is better than living right in the middle of this most unexampled part of the city.

UNESCO World Heritage

The 17th-centrury Canal District is an international icon of urban planning and architecture. Its UNESCO World Heritage listing is just another reason for you to discover this extraordinary piece of Amsterdam. There are just very few places on the globe where architecture reads like a thrilling book.

Jordaan neighborhood

Walk out the door, and on the other side of the canal begins, what is said, the most exciting part of Amsterdam: the Jordaan neighborhood. What was once a working class area is now a unique set of streets, courts and canals.

This is also the place where vintage lovers need to pay attention. Every Saturday and Monday the locals bring their best pieces down from their attics, straight to the Noordermarkt. The vast collection of antiques, books and catchy items seems to get more impressive every week.

Nine Streets area

And then there’s a neighborhood that needs to be at the top of all design enthusiasts’ lists. It’s the home of flourishing craftsmanship and design. The Nine Streets area comprises 9 charming streets that cross the famous canal rings.

It is definitely one of the best neighborhoods surrounding us. Why? Because of the coffee, the boutiques, the people, the shoes, the flowers, the furniture and the wine. Some would compare it with Le Marais in Paris or SoHo in New York City, we think the Nine Streets deserve their own place on your itinerary.
