  • Very Nice place! From there you can go to every attractive place at Amsterdam.
  • Has loooooads of souvenirs however so does every other place in amstetdam. Nothing special
  • Always love holland and this has some great gifts! However this gives you a huge range of objects to buy! If anything try and attempt to learn THANKYOU and good bye in Dutch.
  • Very American feel to this place, clean bright, great selection of touristy nicknaks, great location. Though I'd recommend the Flower market most magnets and trinkets are a few Euro cheaper, that and it has a more European feel
  • Plenty of travellers buys here. Good service too. Can be difficult to get around when full.
