In the 1950's this was my playground. There was a cinema called The Edison. Since the 1990's it has developed into a shopping street, the cinema has been demolished. Now since a few months the street has undergone a total make-over. The parking spaces in the middle haved disappeared the big old trees have made way for new smaller trees.The... More

It was once a canal hence its name, located in the Jordaan district, this street is popular for cafes restaurants and old style houses. Nice just to cruise along taking it all in.

Elandsgracht is a lovely locale for visitors to Amsterdam. Close to public transport, walking distance from CBD, and close to the scenic Presingracht canal. The history of the Jordaan district was part of the expansion of Amsterdam in the 17th century, and a home to potters, painters and leather workers. It was a poor district for workers and immigrants. Industrialisation... More

It is a street with restaurant, cafes, shops, supermarket, a community centre, bakery, coffeeshop, a playground etc. For Local, this is the real Jordaan, "gezellig" (comfortable or pleasant) place. There is a small square with statues of all the famous singers from this area, one of them was Johhny Jordaan. It's not a must but when you're in the neighbourhood,... More

Elandsgracht is a beautiful area of Amsterdam with a mixture of shops, cafés, restaurants and supermarkets in the area with all the essentials easily obtained. Its a short walk from central and is an even quicker journey by public transport. Its worth viewing the architecture as its truly yet another beautiful area of Amsterdam!

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
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. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
