What I love most about this area is that it was away from the crazy busy area of the Dam and other very busy places.

Take a short walk down the paleisstraat and once you hit the canals you have arrived! Clothing ranges from vintage to designer. There are price tags to meet all budgets. There are a lot of independent shops which feels good to support. I recommend King Louie - stunning stunning stunning clothes!

There are a number of artisan coffee houses and restaurants ranging from French, Italian, Asian and Dutch to name a few. We eat at Nooch which is an Asian restaurant. The food was amazing - i highly recommend!

So, take a nice walk around here as you will not be disappointed, there is something for everyone.

De 9 Straatjes is close to the Jordaan, Ann Franks house and a short walk from Dam Square. This makes it easy accessible. Plenty of cafes and little quirky shops, a unique part of Amsterdam. Makes the time flyby when walking round. With street after street full on canals makes it a picturesque area of Amsterdam. You have to visit if your in Central Amsterdam.

One of the neat areas of Central Amsterdam to spend time is Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets) situated between Raadhuisstraat (north) and Leidsegracht (south).

Here you find 9 quaint streets stretching the width of the Canal Ring, providing a nice browsing, shopping an dining area within the city.

The various streets are lined with boutique shops, small cafes, coffee shops and speciality shops. It is a charming scene and location to enjoy downtime in Amsterdam.

I love the 9 little streets. It is my favourite area in Amsterdam. There are cafés hand in hand with small speciality shops. Take your time in this area and enjoy the atmosphere. For a an excellent apple tart try Café Nielsen (Berenstraat 19) or for homemade chocolate heaven try Chocolaterie Pompadour (Huidenstraat 12). And if you enjoy this area, write a review so we can get this area higher up on the TA ranking list.

We love to walk here every time we are in Amsterdam. It's a trendy, but touristic shopping area like most of old Amsterdam, and located close to another interesting neighborhood, the Jordaan, as well as the Westerkerk (where Rembrandt is buried) and Anne Frank House.
The "9 Straatjes" (9 narrow little streets) is littered with little boutiques, gift and art stores, restaurants and cafes. There's no defined border between neighborhoods and one easily wanders from one into the other, all equally picturesque with beautiful facades and canal views, especially on a sunny day. It's like walking through living history.
The neighborhood lies between 2 canals (Single and Prinsengracht) and is bisected by 2 others (Keizersgracht and Herengracht) and is easily walkable from the Dam Square.
Watch out for bicyclists many go very fast even with occupied child seats attached to the handle bars.

I love this bit of Amsterdam. It feels like an "old city center" in many other places would feel. The buildings aren't as wide apart and old and new seem to blend quite well.

The only thing I didn't like so much is that, compared to a visit several years ago, I felt like there were more brand-name shops and less small independents.

Brand name and emerging designer shopping, people watching from the terraces of one of the great cafe´s, restaurants or lounges/bars or simply strolling and feeling the city's heartbeat

9 little streets winding around the canals full of small, unique and individual shops and cafes. Much better to shop here then anywhere else I went in Amsterdam. This is not touristy, it is an authentic and wonderful shopping experience. no tack to be found, and prices range from £ to ££££ so there's plenty for everyone. Also contains THE best little chocolate shop, and if I could remember its name, I would review that too with 5 stars! Definitely worth a morning stroll and a stop for lunch.

Bring your credit cards- you will find something you can't live without. Dutch designer shoes, vintage glasses, Swedish designer dresses, bowls with faces, flasks that look like trout. Yes please- wrap it all up!

My wife likes to window shop here, and I like to examine the houses fronting the canals with my binoculars, especially the gables and descriptive placques at the top of the houses. This neighborhood is a destination in itself, even if you don't like to shop.
