Want to experience what the Jordaan neighbourhood is all about? On this discovery walk, you’ll follow in the footsteps of Secret City Trails co-founders, Kristina & Wendy. The fun riddles they created will send you exploring fascinating locations and learning about them along the way. From comedy to mini-sandwiches, secret speakeasy bars and the best apple pie, Jordaan’s local wonders will stay in your memory for a long time. And you may learn a new thing or two about Rembrandt, Anne Frank, and Dutch customs.
