Noorderkerk is a small Protestant church in the northern area of Jordaan, along the Prinsengracht. While there isn't much to see within the church, it is interesting from an architectural point of view. Opening hours 10am to 6.30pm (October 2016).

In this church they hold little concerts on some Satrdy afternoons. Most of the time very good musicians. The concert last about one hour. We listened to the Schubert octet bij musicians of the Royal Concertgebouw(concerthall) Orchestra. Beautiful.
Today it hit 28C. So meandering around the Saturday market was very pleasant indeed. However in December for example when the temperatures are 4C, it is a different matter. Regardless it is a chill out type place, less congested than the Albert Cuyt Market in...More

Located on the prisengracht within noordermarkt square is this protestant place of worship built in the 17th century. A massive structure, quite plain inside with an ornate organ seems to be typically in keeping with this type of church in Amsterdam, worth a visit especially...More
One of the most important churches of Amsterdam. Unfortunately it is opened for visitors only for a few hours during the week! Moreover, the opening hours differ, when checked in various guidebooks or even websites. We entered the church after Saturday concert to ask the...More
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.
