  • Simply romantic only the building itself just takes you back in time.... It gives you a certain Parisian vibe... sigh if only we could actually gonna in time, before all the sneakers, butt showing jeans hanging half way on the floor, skinny jeans... can we go back 2 the 20's - 60's era lol , where everyone was simply dressed up neatly all the time.
  • The architecture of this place is where the "interesting" factor of the mall ends. Expect plenty of high-end shops and a small number of normal range ones but absolutely nothing exciting, nor cafes or resting spots of any kind. Have had bad experience with the customer service here numerously. All in all quite stale and for a historic building such as this, one one would expect higher standards.
  • Not a big mall but has trendy stores. Most shops had spring promotion. A fee is payable for visiting the restrooms.
  • It is a bit snobby, but the atmosphere is nice. If you're feeling artsy, they have a store inside where you can paint your own small elephant and take it home.
  • Upscale (expensive) shopping mall. Not much to see. The outside facade looks impressive. Restrooms cost one euro. Some stores do have sales and if you are just visiting Netherlands from the states you can get your VAT tax refunded upstairs
