No available data
CALENDULA GUEST HOUSE was built in 1735. There were many small 'hoftjes' (courtyards with small houses) for widows and singles in the Jordaan. A Hoftje is a 17th century courtyard with dwellings off the courtyard.
In 1930 there were 58 hoftjes in Amsterdam, from which no less than 21 where situated in the Jordaan. The Amsterdam Jordaan is undoubtedly the most sung about, described and romanced town district of the Netherlands.
Started as a district for the poor, today it is a favorite place for students, artists and young professionals.
The new inhabitants of the Jordaan, together with the people that stayed behind from the early days, make this neighborhood a pleasant place with a mixture of all kinds of styles and activities.
