Jordaan Nieuws News Journal

The Amsterdam Jordaan is undoubtedly the most sung about, described and romanched town district of the Netherlands. Started as a district for the poor, today it is a favorite place for students, artists and young proffesionals.

This new inhabitants of the Jordaan, together with the people that stayed behind from the erarly days, made this neighborhood a pleasant place with a mixture of all kinds of styles and activities.

If you are planning to stay the night in the Jordaan, we have made an overview of all the hotels.
any people wonder where the name Jordaan comes from. The most heard explanation is that the word has been derived from the French jardin (garden). The French immigrants of the 17th century might have called the district Jardin, because the most of the streets of the Jordaan are named after to flowers.

Some say that the name has been inspired by the river Jordaan, the well-known water from the holy land. Historian Kannegieter is convinced that the name comes from the French river the Jordanne in the Auvergne. The historian explains that the french compared this polluted river with the Prinsengracht, which at that time also was not too clean itself.
