Quite an interesting street to slowly wander around and explore. As already stated in other reviews, not a very busy area, so you get a better feel for the more authentic parts of Amsterdam. Plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop and have something to...More

Haarlem is simply a beautiful place. It has quaint edifices with fantastic architecture. Very lovely places. They have their mini red light district, coffee shops, cafe and the grand archaic churches with huge clothes. Simply lovely

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
