“Boutique Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Very nice area to stroll around. Well-known under locals, less known under tourists. The area is famous for its nice boutique stores. You won't find big chains here. Nice place to shop and to enjoy some good Amsterdam culture. The area is also full of restaurants and places to have a snack and/or drink. The area is relatively small and easy to explore. Worth going, even for non-shoppers.

“Great place for a walk, some shopping and/or a meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

The small sidewalks in the De Negen Straatjes sometimes makes it hard not to walk in the street, this is no problem but watch the cars and cyclists.

I really like walking around in this part of Amsterdam, all the little shops make it a good place to shop, have a lunch (pay a visit to lunchroom Letting in the Prinsenstraat) and just to walk around and enjoy Amsterdam.

Tip: do not forget to look up and enjoy the different ornaments on the roofs.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The nine alleys area is a shopping area with lots and lots of small, cozy shops, ranging from second-hand clothing, through jewelers and artists to design and fashion. There are also cafes and places to eat here, and everything is within 5-10 minutes walking distance. A must-see when visiting Amsterdam.

“For non-main stream boutiques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

If you are looking for nice little shops which are not part of an international chain go here. A lot of clothing shops, but also antiques and goodies are to be found here.

“Great atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Not all normal shops every house and restaurant and shop has something extra. Nice for a walk, a coffee or to buy something you didn't know you needed.
