Slightly away from the busier areas, this part of Amsterdam feels much more relaxed and has some interesting looking houses, as well as some upmarket looking restaurants

Away from the run of the mill boutiques which provided a realistic view of Amsterdam. It was lovely to get away from all the brands that you see elsewhere. The area had character.

First, nearly all the upper portion of Amsterdam is touristy. However, there are spots that are less so and this can be one.

Beautiful residential area with hidden treasures if you are willing to explore beyond the usual touristic area. Found a lovely antique shop and local eateries that were well worth the experience!

The pictures do not relate exatly what your eyes see! The place is wonderful, specially in the srping, when many flowers color the street. Take care with the bikes, because you are going to stop many times do appreciate the view!

Worth a couple hours of your time to explore the charming streets and interesting shops. Also appreciated the shady parts of the street as it was very warm afternoon.
