Quaint old couple of courtyards, Anslo's Hofje and Zwaarvegers Hofje together, presented as Claes Claeszoon's Hofje. Pretty little courtyard, a little bit neglected, ashtrays galore. Cool find though. Inconspicuous entrance. Kind of mysterious. Recommended.

Walking about in the Jordaan, my friend mentioned this Hofje because he used to live here. In the evening all is quiet and it looks very cosy. A small inner square, small houses. Like the architecture and ambiance.

Nice place to poke your head in if you happen to be passing - and notice it is there. We had a guide book or we would have walked past it. To be honest, not a lot to see but the plaque is very nice.

This is a small and peaceful inner yard of a couple of residential buildings. At one corner is situated a nonfunctional water fountain with a lion's head decoration.

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.
