Unique Shops in Unique Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for some wicked things but trust me, there is more to Amsterdam than that, much more! Shopping! Yes, that is one of my favourite things in Amsterdam and that is the reason why I have selected some of the funniest, unique stores to visit while in these beautiful city in Northern Europe. Dutch people do not wear wooden shoes but they do have some pretty special shops that reflect their personalities very well.

The Amsterdam Red Light District – Freedom at Its Best

Displaying a free spirited atmosphere in a beautiful old neighbourhood in Amsterdam, the Red Light District offers a voyeuristic and hedonistic experience which will enchant you instantly. The district boasts of lovely canals, majestic buildings, and a culture of freedom illustrated through its inviting dreamy coffee shops, and the lovely working ladies.

The Albert Cuyp Market

Known as Amsterdam’s biggest street market the Albert Cuyp Market is a buzzing market located in the Old Pijp area. Selling your typical market products - fresh produce, clothes, flowers and foods - it’s probably nothing different to your local market back home but it does make for a great few hours browsing the stalls, mixing with the locals and trying some of the fantastic freshly made food.
