Went to the Christmas Palace since my son had been here last year and he knew I would enjoy it. Many Dutch tree ornaments, Nativity scenes and reasonably priced souvenirs. Nice to bring home ornaments to your friends and family instead of some knick knack that gets tossed. Staff very friendly and loving wrapped my purchases so they would not get broken. Located immediately across the sidewalk from the Flower Market. Beautiful little shop!

“Small store packed with Christmas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

We visited Christmas Palace to see what kind of Dutch ornaments we could find for a souvenir. They didn't have anything out of this world that i just had to have but they did have a lot. They had Amsterdam magnets, little "delft like" blue and white windmill, round or little people ornaments. They had some christmas table cloths and runners, some christmas books, some lights and lots of different assortments of ornaments; birds with feathers, windmills, dutch shoes and people, animals, santas, etc. They also have the little moving Christmas displays and little christmas scene houses. It was a good selection, the employees were friendly. If you like ornaments, especially as a souvenir, this store is worth a visit. Hopefully it will not be busy when you visit because it it not large. Ladies, don't go swinging your handbag around. Keep it very close to you or you may end up buying half the store!

“Everything you never knew you needed for your tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2010

An amazing and fun place to shop. If you have friends that have everything, and you are trying to find them the perfect gift, come here. There are decorations that you did not even know existed. Really precious items, and priced very well too. I was able to find a very specific Christmas snow globe that also played "Tulpen van Amsterdam" for a friend of mine, and the shop-keeper was happy to carefully wrap it so I could bring it safely back with me on the plane. Not to be missed if you are in the area.
