Jordaan District in Amsterdam
Jordaan district is the district most sung about, most written about and most romanticized in the whole of the Netherlands! Go for an exciting walk in the search for hidden courtyards - or hofjes as they are called in Dutch, - here you find the map that locates some of them.
A fine example of Amsteram's inner courtyards, and one of the largest , is the Karthuizerhof in the Jordaan district. It was built in 1650, and listed on the inside of the gate are the names of charitable donors who made it possible to build the property.
