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.

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.
As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
