Saw this place while passing by and stopped for a look. The staff was extremely friendly and actually advised that they would have live candy making (all by hand) at certain times if anyone wants to see how's it made. Plus point is that they also have great tasting sugar free candy.

Handcrafted hard candies that are artisan with little designs in each piece. They give you samples and a little bag is only $3. They actually taste great!

This type of hard candy is beloved in Europe, and they make it right in front of you here. The buff girls who staff this place are beating scalding rolls of sugary paste into long coils to chip into small candy, each with an intricate design embedded within. The flavors here are just the best.

Don't go on a Monday as they do their paper work and are just opened to sell the candies. You have to go and see how they make all sorts of candies. It takes a while but is worth every minute of it. Especially with kids. + it is free!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
