From places to eat to clothing and just about everything else, this is a cool street to explore. The best wine shop in Amsterdam is located on this street, Charbol and the narrowest restaurant in the world also, The Green Lantern [in English].

Actually these are two streets, Haarlemmerstraat followed by the Haarlemmerdijk after the bridge. I still have to figure out why. This stretch of historic buildings and unique stores is our most loved attraction. We were lucky enough to find a place to stay right at the beginning, so we started the day by getting fresh baked bread across the street... More

Cycled here from Amsterdam (be warned, it’s further than you might imagine!) and were in desperate need of liquids by the time we got there. The square is huge, like a massive outdoor food court. Attentive service with a wide choice of drinks and food. Wonderful in the summer months.

My hotel located in the middle of Haarlemmerstraat and we enjoyed browsing inside stores. Each stores has unique characters and very fun to walk around. Better to be walking around this stree than Dam SQ.

During our stay in Amsterdam, we toured much of the inner city on foot. One afternoon, as we were returning to our hotel located on the Damrak, we enjoyed a pleasant stroll along Haarlemmerstraat. There we found an eclectic mixture of retail outlets, restaurants, cafes and bars. Amongst the great variety of shops located there, were stores offering good quality... More

I loved how quiet this street was. Visiting in the idle of the summer season was many not my finest idea. Plenty to do here and not hundreds of people waving their dreaded selfie sticks about. Lovely coffee shops ( I mean real coffee not Amsterdam) serving delicious hot coffee and assortments of cakes. Spent a while here as I... More

Haarlemmerstraat/dijk close to the central station. Combination of food (Sweets, Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, but also restaurants) and unique shops (design, clothing, home, books and more). Some of my favourites: Papabubble (sweets), &Klevering (gifts), Store without a home (design, interior), Concrete Matter (man stuff), Deksels (cooking), 't Zonnetje (coffee) and more.

If you don't like the 9 Streets (cute but completely touristic) and you are looking for a street with "real" shops, the Haarlemmerstraat and -dijk is your destination. You can walk to the Haarlemmerplein with its happy fountain.
