These 9 narrow, XVII century survivals are the best streets to go (window) shopping, finding awesome little bookstores, galleries and cafés. These 9 blocks are just in the middle of the canal areas, not really far from the busy Kalverstraat, but it is still an oasis. Even though it's a bit gentrified, there is a lot of authenticity in the... More

This is Amsterdam's Greenwich Village. The area is replete with little boutiques, selling everything from homemade jewelry to beautiful handbags. The area has a generous number of small restaurants with tables set outside. We loved it here and spent most of an afternoon. When you tire, take a bench by one of the canals and enjoy the view. We had... More

I looooved the nege straatjies. There I found creativity and history cosying up on the same "drempel". Book & newspaper stores, food & drink for different tastes, designer clothing, organic food stores, second-hand clothing, bargains vs over-the-top prices: YOU make the choice. But, this is where I felt most at home ... almost like Cape Town!

Great area to stroll and shop, people watch, eat, etc.... My highlight of the entire area was Ijscuypje ice cream!!!!! I had a cone with chocolate, pistachio & yogurt. Can I just say the yogurt was probably the most delicious thing ever! Highly recommend trying out this place!

I was rather disappointed with De Negen Straatjes. Upon researching it, I was under the impression that it was devoid of the typical tourist masses, however, sadly this did not appear to be the case. Teeming with seeming vacationers eager to spend on semi-annual sales, and guzzling pints of lager, I left feeling uninspired and felt that I could have... More

This area of Amsterdam is very close to the centre of town and offers a large variety of places. There are many unique shops and although most of them tend to be quite expensive, there are some gems worth visiting, for example custom jewelry shops and huge second hand shops. The many cafés offer a great place to stop for... More

One of the most intriguing shopping districts in Amsterdam, the De Negen Straatjes or Nine Streets tops the list. Made up of nine individual streets located in the heart of Amsterdam, the shops lining either side are truly unique. You’ll find everything from clothing to old records to art and sculptures. Truly a Progressive/Alternative type of shopping experience with boutique... More

Great area with boutique shops and many cafe's for a great afternoon or more. Even more fun in sales time. After walking around sit on a canal for a beer and a snack (try the dutch 'bitterballen') or go for a meal in one of the canalside restaurants.
