Skip the Kalverstraat and come straight here. Lovely boutiques with cool cafes and eateries in between. Try Nielsen for lovely biological food! My favourite place is Stout - a lingerie boutique run by an unbelievably friendly and helpful lady, who will give you expert and honest advice.

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...

We were lucky to be able to stroll through the nine streets basking in sunlight. The small streets offer a variety of bars, restaurants and fun little stores to delve into. Boardgame fanatics will enjoy The Gamekeeper, a cosy gaming shop with sympathetic, knowledgeable men helping you potentially spend a lot of money. A small tip: if you walk to... More

Pros: Selection of boutique shops/cafes, beautiful architecture Cons: Selection of expensive boutique shops The Nine Streets area of the city is well worth a visit. There is a wide variety of small shops with a great selection of clothes art etc. Unless you have an unlimited budget you would be advised to keep you hands in your pockets as there... More

It's a nice location for a walk and stopping at a café or restaurant for some coffee or a good lunch, but the stores are all quite pricey.

Walk around here, avoiding the big 'shopping streets' is the best thing you can do in Amsterdam. Try the small shops, not the ones that belong to a 'retail groups'. You cross many bridges across the famous canals. From the South (/East), the first of the 9 Streets is Wijde Heisteeg; already you find nice coffee (Illy) and lunch to... More
