If you are into shopping and finding great little gems in second hand and gift stores, this is the area you want to visit when in Amsterdam. These 9 streets (Negen Straatjes) are part of the Jordaan, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Amsterdam. You'll find lots of stores, restaurants and cafes in this beautiful part of the city. Lots...

The nine streets aren't just about the shopping as many would have you believe. The nine streets are a small taste of Dutch culture. Firstly, no malls 👍🏻, loads of history and architecture 👍🏻 plenty of locals who are willing to chat and help you navigate Amsterdam 👍🏻. You can be sure to find a treasure to buy but if... More

The location and the streets themselves are very beautiful and worth a stroll, but the shops are just small overpriced boutiques, not much to see nor buy.. I gave up after the 6th street :)

I had limited time in Amsterdam but a colleague assured me that this was a must next after the Rijks Museum so that's exactly what I did. A bit of background, I work for a luxury apparel company so shopping/shopping areas are really fun for me. I can see how if one did not enjoy shopping or spending money, this... More

There's just no need to make a special trip to this area. One can find interesting shops throughout the Jordaan and in other parts of the city. We scheduled our Nine Streets walk toward the end of a week in Amsterdam, and we had seen better shops elsewhere.

A fantastic diversity of shops, ranging from antique to designer, as well as quaint cafes and delicatessens to purchase food from. Expect to spend a few hours slowly wandering around!

The houses are great, the canals lovely, there are some nice places to have lunch, but overall the place is overrated. Amsterdam has better places to enjoy your wanderlust

The nine streets offers small independent shops and cafes and is great to just stroll around. If it's not for you then your time won't be wasted. It's a part of Amsterdam you have to vist at least once.

This area of Amsterdam has a myriad of smaller independent shops and cafés. Quite a mixture of shops, some expensive, some quirky, but an adventure just to explore the area. Watch out for the cyclists that seem to have no fear, crossing bridges and junctions at break-neck speeds.

We were glad the 'Negen Straatjes' were in our neighborhood and we didn't make any effort to visit them, because they're not special at all. We've been told that the nine streets were full of independent, little stores with a lot of character; if you consider Clarks, Cos or the supermarket chain Marqt as independent stores, this may be the...
