Great shopping / strolling area

Reviews made me feel excited to visit this area of Amsterdam but coming from a big city, I wasn't really that impressed. Lots of small shops but not to my taste.

The 9 little streets are to be found near to Anne frank House and Dam Square. The streets straddle two canals and were the leather trading centre of Amsterdam. Today, this area of cobbled streets houses quirky shops, restaurants and galleries. Take a little time off from trying to get into museums and saunter the back streets, just brilliant.

Very chill vibe here, lots of cute shops and plenty of restaurants and places to have some wine or coffee. I loved roaming around aimlessly, buying little things and enjoying the scenery.

We strolled through this area stopping at a cafe and various shops. The stores are distinct and varied, and staff seemed welcoming. It is easy to find and accessible by transit but we stayed nearby. The streets were clean and safe and the views incredible.

Lots of shops to visit and sights to take in. A must for tourists in Amsterdam. Lovely location but shops are pricey.

Centrally-located between Dam Square and the Jordaan, these 9 little streets are chock full of eclectic shops and cafes. Look for vintage shops, worldwide folk art, home decor, clothing, and more!

Busy little corner of Amsterdam with quirky shops and lovely coffee shops. A bit touristy but nice to walk around for the location alone
