There are many areas for fashion shopping in Amsterdam. This article tells you the best, the coziest and the most surprising shopping areas of Amsterdam.

City Center Shopping

The ‘Kalverstraat’ and ‘Leidsestraat’ are the mainstream shopping streets of Amsterdam. Some high fashion brands are situated in these streets, but most of the outlets represent the more common brands you can find in any major city. A good place to find all major brands is shopping center ‘Kalvertoren’.

Nine Streets Area

The Nine Streets area is a melting pot for all sorts of fashion. There are vintage shops, trendy boutiques, designer studios, jewelers, art galleries, specialty foods stores and lot’s of fine cafes, lunchrooms and restaurants. You’ll need at least a day to walk around all the alleys and hidden boutiques.

High Level Fashion Amsterdam

One of Holland’s best known streets is the posh ‘PC Hooftstraat’. Here you can find any major fashion brands and luxury product. The ‘Cornelis Schuytstraat’, ‘Van Baerlestraat’ and ‘Beethovenstraat’ offer a few more chic fashion boutiques. 

Red Light Fashion

Now here’s something you probably did not expect. For high level fashion you must go to the Red Light District. Next to the girls of pleasure is an assembly of young and talented designers. The so-called Red Light Fashion is located along the ‘Oudezijds Achterburgwal’. A visit to the CODE Gallery Store and La Beuf Shoes is a must.

Art and Antiques

The ‘Spiegelkwartier’ (Mirror Quarter) is located behind Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and is a gathering place for art and antique stores. If you are in search for historical items or interesting curiosities this is the place to be.
