Amsterdam Street Art


Street Art Tour Amsterdam | part 4 | the Jordaan

18 November 2014

Discover the street art at de Jordaan in Amsterdam!

Did you know that historic district The Jordaan is full of street art? For me this was one of the biggest surprises of the recent street art tour I did in Amsterdam! I LOVE the street art of Space Invader and in the Jordaan there’s a real one. You can check this with the app Flash Invaders. This app also counts how many Space Invaders you spotted!

Stroll down the streets of the Jordaan and be surprised about the beautiful graffiti and other street art. Or go on a tour with Nicole of Street Art Tour Amsterdam and she shows them to you.
