Westfield Mall of the Netherlands
Shopping for every taste
You can easily spend an entire day perusing the 215 clothing, homeware, kids’ and electronics stores at Westfield Mall of the Netherlands. From major international clothing labels to independent boutiques, the impressive variety and ever-changing stock is a shopaholic’s dream. It’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on items for the whole family. Don’t miss a visit to The Gallery, the mall’s own “hip neighborhood”, where iconic brands are interspersed with pop-ups from local designers and artists. Taking the form of a concept store, there’s a stylish barbershop, spaces for product launches and promotions, and a constantly evolving assortment of goods on display.
Eat, drink and shop some more
Shopping and dining go hand in hand, and Westfield Mall of the Netherlands ensures you’ll never make a purchase on an empty stomach. The Eet Theater (“Food Theater”) is a high-end food hall home to a selection of restaurants and bars that are always buzzing late into the evening. Treat yourself to a coffee, enjoy a pre-cinema drink or to turn a day of shopping into a night of dining. Discerning foodies will also appreciate the world of flavors on offer at the center’s second food hall concept, De Fresh. Think of it as a culmination between a Medditeranean market, an Arabic souk, an Asian grocery store and a French wine cellar. Shop for artisanal products from around the world, stop for a bite or even watch a live culinary event. Celebrity chefs including Miljuschka Witzenhausen regularly host cooking demonstrations, workshops and tastings.
More than meets the eye
Westfield Mall of the Netherlands offers more than you might expect from a shopping center with surprises around every corner. There’s a cinema with 11 state-of-the-art screening rooms, including the MX4D experience that offers a full sensory experience – moving chairs, weather simulations and scent effects. Play games in the arcade and put your bowling or mini golf skills to the test. Make the most of your five minutes of fame in the Youseum – a TikTok-themed selfie museum that lets you create shareable videos across 18 rooms and 25 installations. The center also hosts events such as live music performances, workshops and kids’ activities. You can also recharge from all the excitement with a relaxing treatment at the spa. There’s something to entertain people of all ages and interests, and there’s always a reason to make a second visit.
