Amsterdam is an old city - almost the whole center dates from the 17th century and while towns were much smaller centuries ago and even the biggest Europe’s capitals as Paris or London had only one million inhabitants, Amsterdam kept its previous scale and remained until today a small metropolis. Sometimes people call it the smallest of the big cities. That makes shopping in Amsterdam fun, because you may do it all walking. Amsterdam is also full of small shops, with unique import contacts - their choice of products in Amsterdam will be different from any other big city. Here are the best shopping streets of Amsterdam:
This is the Rodeo Drive of Amsterdam: modest architecture and the best shops in town. This small street in a close neighborhood of the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum.
In a short walking distance from the P.C.Hooftstraat, a side street located behind the Concertgebouw. This is a shopping centre for the people who live in that expensive area of town with everything you might need.
A busy street that goes out of the Rembrandtplein and has several shops, which are so good on their field that shopping there is fun.
An elegant street in the South Amsterdam (Amsterdam Zuid). Built in the 30-ties of the 20th century, more modern and convenient to visit than the Amsterdam old streets, with wide sidewalks and big shop windows.
*The 9 Small Streets – De 9 Straatjes
This part of the Amsterdam Canal district in the Old City is probably most interesting shopping area in town: the 9 small streets which are in fact three paralel streets led across the main canals of the city.
Probably the busiest of all shopping streets of Amsterdam, goes across the city center. Kalverstraat is usually crowded with many shops selling competitively priced products.
*Westerstraat in the Jordaan
Usually a sleepy wide street, known before only for its Monday market, became last years the whole area in the Jordaan very popular for shoppers because of the design stores.
Just a short wide street parallel to the lively Waterlooplein flea market, with all standard Dutch stores.
Probably the youngest of the trendy shopping streets in town. Less expensive but with the big variety of shops.
