An impressive looking building from the outside but not all that impressive inside. Its a mall of premium brands and boutiques. High end expensive mostly. Annoyingly you have to pay 1eur to go to the toilet.

Small gift and shopping mall with limited brands shops. The place has magnificent architecture but is half empty on its 3 floor. Not bad compared to the other Amsterdam

Originally Amsterdam's main post office, this elegant Neo-Gothic building opposite the Royal Palace on Spuistraat now houses a small but rather upmarket shopping mall. Impressive architecture both inside and outside, with a massive chandelier in the entrance. I am not a happy shopper, so can't...More

Lovely little shopping mall. Good for a rainy day. It is small though so you would finish it in no time.

The building is an excellent piece of architecture. It is located at Dam Square. The interior of the building is also very good. As far as shopping is concerned this is not the place. There were very few shops open notably Armani and Swarovski. At...More

Never minds the quality of the shops, here we have a building which has been beautifully restored. It is a classy shopping mall in the very centre of the city. It's three floors of designer gear. Just spend some time drifting around and enjoy the...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
