If you are looking for items unique to Amsterdam, avoid Kalverstraat street. The shops are found all over the world, and the merchandise is overpriced.

Instead visit Leidsestraat (a busy Amsterdam street, located between the Place Royale and the Leidseplein), Het Spiegelkwartier (an absolute must for lovers of art, antiques & curios), the Jordaan, or in particular, one of the ‘negen straatjes’ (nine streets).

The most ‘ethnic’ shopping street in Amsterdam is the Javastraat, an older area just outside the city center.

The Fashion & Museum District located in Amsterdam Zuid (close to the Museum district) is considered the chic area for shopping in Amsterdam. Go for some of the finest designer shops in the city, including designer shoes, health and well-being specialists, massage, fashion boutiques, designer interiors, designer florists and specialist shops.
