If you only have a few hours to get a taste of Amsterdam, this historic neighbourhood is the place to go. A labyrinth of narrow streets and canals dotted with independent art galleries, antique shops, courtyard gardens and atmospheric bars and restaurants, the Jordaan is a postcard-perfect slice of Amsterdam.

For delicious food in a hurry, head to indoor food market De Foodhallen, where you’ll find more than 20 streetfood vendors serving up some of the best bites in Amsterdam. DURATION: 30-40 MINUTES

Everything in Amsterdam is better when viewed from a boat, and a quick one-hour tour is a great way to acquaint yourself with the city. Order your canal cruise ticket online to save time on the day (iamsterdam.com/canalcruise) or get a free canal cruise with the I amsterdam City Card. DURATION: 1 HOUR
