  • The Waterlooplein Market is a famous flea market in Amsterdam, but, in my opinion, lacks in atmosphere. Not in the least, because one side of the Waterlooplein, between the square and the river Amstel...  more »

  • The market is cool and there's a plenty of nice little object typical of Holland. For example I bought for very little a model of the peculiar Amsterdam's house, a little box made of Delft Blue classical pottery (it was just 3€) and a big flag of the city (the one with the three X's. I liked also the food sector with so much quality street food, perfect for walking around the market and tasting a little bit of this marvellous city.
  • Massive, everyday flea market in Amsterdam. There's the old and new to rummage through and plenty of souvenirs or bargains to be had. It's surrounding streets have vintage shops and local cafés, which are also worth a visit.
  • Wonderful market full of many vendors and stands. Can find nearly anything you are looking for. Not five stars because there is a lot of cheap low quality stuff you should avoid but if you do thay and stick to the good stuff you'll find yourself very pleased with your purchases. If visiting I highly recommend visiting even if not buying and just to see the famous market.
  • Good local market. Place to buy your first Amsterdam cycle if you want it cheap. But look around a bit for the better samples.
  • So many choices,able to get all my souvenirs in one place. I love one stop shopping.
