The city centre makes for some lovely shopping. The Lijnmarkt is a bustling, busy street with many fashion and shoe shops. Here you can catch glimpses of the beautiful Oude Gracht, which also boasts plenty of special fashion and jewellery shops.
Korte Jansstraat and Domstraat
Two special shopping streets with surprising shops. This is not the place to go for big fashion chains but rather for the small, specialist design shops.
Schoutenstraat and Korte Minrebroederstraat
Historical streets just outside the bustling shopping district, with small, exclusive shops. It’s an easy walk from the Neude, definitely worth the trouble!
