Shopping in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a Mecca for shopaholics. The city is famous for its many, quirky shops and boutiques; from vintage fashion to tailor-made and from buttons (yes! there is one shop entirely dedicated to buttons) to the Waterlooplein flea market. Shopping in Amsterdam should feature high on your shopping-want-to-do list!

If you are looking for high-end fashion, sexy souvenirs and everything in between, Amsterdam is the place to be. The city brims with shops and boutiques all sorts. If you have a well-lined wallet, head for P.C. Hooftstraat where you will find many international Fashion Houses. Stroll up and down Kalverstraat if you are looking for more affordable fashion.

With 6000 shops, 222 antique shops and 33 markets, Amsterdam is the largest shopping city in the Netherlands. Wander through Amsterdam and you will discover at almost every corner and street tiny shops that specialize in sexy lingerie or high-end fashion. Bookshops with shelves lined with cookery, children’s and travel books but also novels, crime and science fiction and many are in English! Check out the shop that specialises in board games. Did you know that there is a shop selling only toothbrushes..?
