When you visit Amsterdam and you want to shop for the big names, like Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Chartier, you can find them here. The PC Hooftstreet is situated in the South of Amsterdam, very near the Vondelpark and the Rijksmuseum. You need an extensive budget to shop here. It has an international atmosphere, but is not to far to... More

Very high end shops and exclusive boutiques. At Christmas time the storefronts and their windows are magically lighted and decorated. Bring a lot of money! Fun to visit and view.

P.C. Hoofstraat is a street full of high end shops. Not much to explore and see if you're just going to stroll or window shop. A bit of a walk from the tram stops.

If you have the urge to ask what an item costs because you cannot find or read the price tag, you are not in the right place anyway. Count on almost everything here having a hefty price tag and to be of superior design and quality. If that does not call your name, then don't go here.

To get a good look and impression one have to go into the shops. Living in London with an enormous choice my wife didn't think the world of it. The street itself is nothing spectacular.

Xou must have a lot of money if you walk on this street with your wife. The shops are high end, and you can find almost every label, the most famous brands.

Full of luxury items located at the same street near the Museumplein and Vondelpark. If you are looking for luxury items for you or your family, so here you might find them.

Like all high-end fashion shopping street, you will find the usual brands here, Prada, Gucci etc. Unless you are into high-end shopping, this street is not very exciting and may be good for window shopping. Give it a miss I suggest and visit other more interesting streets by the canals.

This street is very high-end and consists of all the big names in fashion and accessories. Staff are generally pleasant and speak English fairly well. It is quite quiet with only a few shoppers wandering around.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
