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!

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
