The main street through this area is narrow and can become clogged with tourists. It is located just West of the Dam Square and has many shops of interest.

Nine Streets is a magical place in Amsterdam, over the whole year it transforms several times, from lovely spring bloom all the way around to christmas lights. Many people like it because of many odd shops, lots of vintage and seconhand, me on the other hand I like it because of the quirky buildings that lean on the neighbours and... More

The uniqueness of these nine shopping streets is due to it's small shops that are not part of any commercial chain (those shops can be found on the Kalverstraat). In this shopping district you'll find lovely clothing and gift items that you may not find anywhere else. I'm a plus size, and although I can't find anything there in my... More

I think we would have taken 2 hours to do 6 of the 9 streets which were quiet streets with premium boutiques, bookstores and restaurants and it was wonderful to discover local flavours such as Mendo, Scotch and Soda and many, many other premium, quirky small and big things here. I will come back here next time in Amsterdam and... More

The boutiques and restaurants are such a unique taste of the Dutch people. All boutiques are very unique with very different things from shop to shop. Same feel with the little restaurants. I wondered for a couple hours enjoying every moment in this very special place in Amsterdam.

I loved wandering around the 9 streets and it's mix of quirky, familiar, designer and independent stores. We had lunch in a fantastic cafe (sorry I can't remember what it was called but it has green leafy wallpaper and outdoor seating) which was delicious and looked popular with locals too. I also visited a jewellery store where you can choose... More

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...

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
