Amsterdam is a Walhalla if you like shopping. While most people head straight away to the well-known busy “Kalverstraat”, with the big standard shops like: “ZARA, H&M, Pull & Bear, Urban Outfitters and Footlocker”. We think you’ll get a better retail therapy at “De Negen Straatjes”. Another shopping mecca with more locally flavoured stores.
De Negen Straatjes is the collective name for nine cross streets that connect the four main canals of Amsterdam (Singel, Heren-, Keizers- and Prinsengracht). The streets are in the middle of Unesco World Heritage. You'll find a charming variety of shops here, which are selling everything from toothbrushes to antique prints, from vintage and second-hand clothing to trendy fashion and couture. Conscious Tip: Laura Dolls is a lovely vintage boutique specialized in clothing from the 50s.
