One of the great European paradises for shopping lovers is Amsterdam , a city where you can find everything and distributed by boutiques, shops, street vendors, markets, factories and any establishment you can imagine. Of course, flowers are one of the things that are sold the most, although cheeses are very close in the ranking. The best thing is that you can find everything in the city center , so you will not have to make long trips, in a simple walk you will have everything at your fingertips.
So, if you want to go shopping in Amsterdam I recommend that you get a little hotel that is in the center since this way you can get everywhere on foot, there are many at a good price so it is great not to have to depend on transport public. Areas such as the main canals, the Leidsestraat or the Jordaan district are full of cafes, restaurants, boutiques , shops, art galleries, jewelers, flower shops, etc.
In the museum district, where you can find the Rijksmuseum , the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk, it is also the place where most of Amsterdam’s luxury shops are, as well as designer shops where you will find really amazing items, especially on PC Hooftstraat , which is the most elegant and exclusive street in the city and where you can find Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Ralpf Lauren, DKNY or Tommy Hilfiger stores, among others.
The two most important streets in the city center for shopping are Kalverstraat and Leidsestraat , where you will find stores such as H&M, Zara, Miss Sixty, Mexx, Karen Millen or Filippa K. If you like antiques, you have the Spiegelkwartier , also in downtown and where you will find more than 70 art and antique shops or galleries and where you can find spectacular collections of ceramics, glass, paintings, furniture, jewelry, tribal items and everything old you can imagine.
