“Expensive shopping area...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Technically there isn't anything really wrong with this place.

Only thing we felt was that this is just another shopping area. Shops were selling pretty much their own brands of clothing, bags and accessories. Apart from that the streets were nice. But nothing more unique than other streets in Amsterdam, e.g. the street along flower market..

We allocated 3 hours for the nine streets. Ended up walking around for at most an hour and decided to head back to flower market which was way more interesting.

“Lots to see and drink”

I pass through here on my bicycle every day to go to work. It's a lovely neighbourhood with traditional buildings and lots and lots of small bars, foodshops and coffee places.

“Cute tiny boutiques.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you want to enjoy Amsterdam and if you are not into Zara, H&M etc. This is where you should go. It's a great neighbourhood for shopping and dining. Here you can find many local Boutiques. And there are a few good restaurants and bars. But beware of tourist traps. Don't enter a restaurant which sells pancakes or anything else "typically Dutch" in English.

This area is made up of nine little streets, full of boutique type shops, bars & the odd coffee shop. Really interesting shopping.
