Damrak, Amsterdam

(2.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Hunt for souvenirs at Damrak, an avenue filled with small shops and historical buildings. Many people also come here at night for the large range of choices in restaurants and bars, but if you don't enjoy the party scene, you may want to choose a different location. Currency exchanges are also plentiful here, in case you need to change some bills. A partially filled canal runs along the walkway and serves as a busy route for canal boats. Get here easily via the GVB trams. Use our Amsterdam travel itinerary planner to add Damrak and other attractions to your Amsterdam vacation plans.

  • Always good to through Amsterdam to run during the winter period. On to the Dam where it always is a social gathering of many people. Also fun to go to the Beehive or the Kalverstraat. The lighting makes it an even more beautiful city. A beautiful, historic piece of Netherlands. Tip: avoid the cars even more of the Dam.

  • This Albert Heijn To Go is a smaller and expensiver sort of Albert Heijn. This is very logic because of the central location it makes it much more expensive. The store offers everything a small supermarket offers fresh vegetables and fruits, cheese, fresh orange juice and other groceries. If you are in the centrum this will be the prices.
  • Super expensive, almost 20% more than in other AH shops. But if you're in a hurry that may do the trick.
  • Too expensive. Bought a bottle of water for 2,50€.
  • OK Albert Heijn. The staff doesn't care about you, but the self-scan counters are rather convenient.
  • Good little AH to Go! Saves you queuing up in the huge AH
