What travellers are saying
- This market offered a really good range of cheap, excellent street food and lots of items to buy, including souvenirs.
There are also a number of permanent food and beverage outlets with outdoor seating amongst it all.
A vibrant atmosphere. Well worth a visit and not far from some of the big tourist sights.Written 6 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I came here on my own and was a little nervous but I love things like this so wanted to do it! The place was super cute and fun! The staff made me feel so much better about being on my own and were super engaging and took photos for me. You also get videos and photos sent to your QR code for free as they have photo stands in a lot of the areas. Would definitely prefer to visit with friends, but glad I went! 💗Written 25 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This large department store has lots of high end brands which seems to be a focus. There was a sale on when we visited but, despite looking high and low for a bargain that we both liked, we came away empty handed.
Probably the main shop to visit if in Amsterdam.Written 2 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We walked past the flower shops one morning and admired the enormous range of bulbs for sale. Impressive. Unfortunately we were there at the wrong time of year to see tulips in bloom so it was all a tad underwhelming.
As well as the bulbs, there were lots and lots of tourist souvenirs for sale. All much of a muchness and I couldn't swear as to their authenticity or quality. That said, I did see some souvenirs that were very tacky looking and low on quality.Written 1 August 2023
- Walked through this market and enjoyed seeing the different vendors. Many featured clothing, including leather jackets.Written 14 June 2023
- Hema is a chain of lower priced department stores. They sell everything from food, clothing, household goods, office supplies and other items. I like the store on the Kalverstraat as it is not busy, is very clean and is usually stocked with goods. Not as big as some of the other Hema's but it has a good selection. If you are into serious shopping, then the one nearer to Dam Square might be better. Wheelchair accessible. Just take elevator down as it is in the basement of this mall.Written 5 September 2019
- Nieuwmarkt, a small neighborhood next to the notorious Red Light District, is the place of Amsterdam's Chinatown. It is a surprisingly neat area with some Chinese ethnic stores and restaurants. Close to a peaceful canal, the area is a pleasant place to spend some time. Unfortunately the square around the Waag is under construction.Written 5 June 2023
- A lovely place and people, but beware of the city tax €70 for four days, also there is very limited cash expenditure all food, beer, museums, most shops only accept credit/debit cards and charge for card usage on average 35 cents per transaction so limited cash neededWritten 28 September 2023
- The whole of Spuismarkt is a bit of a flea market, but the section set aside for art features local artists displaying the best of their works. Almost all of them are remarkable. But of course, some may appeal to you and others will not.
Local work by local artists is *exactly* what we wanted to bring home with us. Both as gifts for others and keepsakes for our home. We came *this* close to buying some jewelry. But the huge yellow poster by the painter known as Mr. Yellow called out to us more, and it now hangs on a wall in our home. We also bought several hand-carved gifts for our children, but the amazing hand-carved lizard on a tree stump ... oh no, I just can't figure out how to pack it safely into our luggage or carry it onto the plane. Well, there ya go ... local art is sold as much to local residents as to visitors. Our son would have LOVED it.
The Spui market has the art section, an amazing section dedicated to books and books and even more books. Plus the average local flea market.
But the most important feature of the art market--for travelers who are on a tight schedule--is that it's open on Sundays! Most of the markets are closed on Sundays.Written 4 April 2023
- Fun place to buy the famous cows, including local and limited edition designs. Very good and friendly service. Reasonable value for moneyWritten 4 February 2022
- Great place to go to! Had samples of every cheese and even some of the condiments they sell, my boyfriend insisted on trying them all and loved them! He loved the garlic cheese and the smoked goats cheese, and he said that the beer cheese was the first one he'd tried that actually tasted like beer! The museum room below was very interesting and worth a look. A lovely thing to do if you have some spare time.Written 14 April 2023
- To die for cookies,
They are so fresh and delicious, they make batches as they go, could not recommend more.
Luckily when we went it was a tiktok hype but the queue wasn’t too long, even if the queue is slightly long these are to wait for.
I would recommend getting more than 4 if you are sharing as you crave more. They are so soft to bite into and the inside is lush. Quick and friendly service as well as prices being fair.
Easy to locate shop, definitely recommended.Written 20 September 2023

- Make sure you get some good directions. Not the easiest place to find, however once you get there, there are a lot of choices.Written 29 June 2023
- Arden Art Gallery had hung some art in the hotel where we were staying in Amsterdam. We really liked what we saw so we decided to find the gallery to visit it. We were greeted warmly and the lady in the gallery was extremely helpful, patient and nice. She spent lots of time with us, explaining us the artwork, guiding us in our choice through an amazing selection. We bought a fairly big piece and had it shipped to our house in Canada. The package arrive VERY QUICKLY (less than 3 weeks!) and was extremely well wrapped. We strongly recommend the Arden Art Gallery and we will definitely go back when in Amsterdam again.Written 21 August 2023
