Please note: New Address is Rokin 66 Amsterdam Centrum This is my favorite cheese shop. Almost all the others only have one variety of Dutch cheese. Arxhoek has many as well as cheese from all over Europe. I was very sad when their old location closed and kept asking if they had reopened. I was very happy to find out... More

From Feb 2015 to Feb 2016 when we were there last, these shops have sprung up all over Amsterdam - always worth visiting if only for gifts to take home.

This is my favorite cheese shop in Amsterdam! Every variety imaginable, with something for everyone. Friendly, helpful staff offers generous samples to help the shopper make the best choices for gifts and personal consumption. I enjoy visiting this shop each time I visit the city.

I am pretty sure only those not knowing other shops go here mainly thanks to its location. The shop has a decent selection and like all cheese shops, smells great. Enough to lure you in. Yet be aware, these guys are overpriced compared to other shops, yet this is the case for most retailers in prime locations. The biggest issue... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
