  • Delightful shopping street. For everyone there is something to find. Fine. H&M, Levis and Lush and many other stores. What a pity was that many shops were selling not XXL. It was pressure in the street and you had little trouble.

  • If your looking for designer outlets or local brands, this street has it all. Missed the sales but still found good bargains for entire family.  more »
  • There are many internationally known shops and other locations. Pretty busy, is close to many sights such as the Museum of history and the old village Begijnhof. Begins at Dam square, where is the Royal Palace and the big department store Bijenkorf.
