About the neighbourhood
'De Jordaan' is a perfect place to live like the 'Amsterdammers' do. It's a very social district, where everybody seems to get along with each other. The meeting point of the locals is across the street at Café De Nieuwe Lelie, where breakfast is served from 10 am and the last drink will be served around 2 in the morning. The pubs, musea (The Anne Frank house is just a 5 min walk), shopping district and the nightlife are all around the corner.
