This store is full of luxurious brands for handbags, watches, shoes etc. Well decorated, a must see. I love their restaurant in the top floor (Kitchen De Bijenkorf Amsterdam) which have couple cooking tables for you to choose your favorites and the 5th floor where the desserts are located. Their pastries are so beautiful. A wonderful place to shop.

A must see when visiting Amsterdam, or the Netherlands in particular. The store sells many goods of well-known brands. Overseas travelers: you are able to get your VAT (sales tax) reimbursed when traveling back to your home country. Citizens of Europe are obviously not eligible to use this offer.

I spent around 4 hours browsing through thousands of stuff inside this place. I love the tax-free counter on level 4, it was really helpful for tourists to get our tax refund. I do recommend people to get your tax refund here instead of lining up at the airport's tax refund counter.

Service at the Chanel Counter was very professional. We were given personal attention according to our personal taste and smells. We were given all the time in the world to enjoy and admire the wonderful world of Chanel and almost have that feeling of been swept off your feet! Will revisit yesterday if it were possible. Bravo to all staff... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
