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.

  • Nice to walk along, but so full and busy. A lot of people who hang out. I have always had the idea that I should bite through here for I really Amsterdam in May.

  • If you come by train you about the Damrak Amsterdam enters further into the city. Too bad if the damrak Amsterdam is your first impression, because this is an ugly and unsociable piece. Pressure and noisy.

  • From the Central Station you become about this so called. Red carpet the Center initiated. The street is horrible pressure! A regular inhabitant of Amsterdam you will find rarely here but if you have the eyes gives you can see all sorts of shadowy types. Take care of your stuff. The huge crowds for many types a huge opportunity. When I stopped my hand in my Pocket I suddenly ran hand in hand with a completely strange.

  • 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
