Amsterdam also draws a lot of fashion talent, which means you can find a lot of extraordinary fashion shops here. From alternative budget shops to big chains and exclusive couture, Amsterdam is the place to visit for some serious fashion shopping!
City centre: This is where you find the big shopping streets, like the Leidsestraat, Kalverstraat and Nieuwendijk. There are many well-known (international) fashion chains as well as less well known fashion shops. This is also the district to go for shoe shopping.
Jordaan: This eternally cosy ‘people’s neighbourhood’ harbours countless small designer shops, ranging from alternative to exclusive. If you have sophisticated tastes, the Jordaan is definitely the place to visit. You will be spoiled for choice!
Zuid: Amsterdam-Zuid has chic shopping streets like the PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat and Beethovenstraat. Here you will find a wide selection of international top brands. If you have deep pockets, you can fill your wardrobe to bursting here.
De Wallen: This old district – which is mainly known as the ‘red-light district’, boasts several special designer shops concentrated around the Oudezijds Achterburgwal. The district is called Red Light Fashion and shops like CODE come highly recommended.
