Nice looking historic building. The so-called shopping centre inside is small, has few shops, lots of unoccupied spaces, upper floor is closed for renovation. The staff in some of the shops does not even speak Dutch which shows that it caters to tourists.

Expensive shopping but a neat place. I always stop there because I like to shop at the liquor store and large Albert Heijn nearby

As far as shopping centre's in general are concerned, this one is nothing to right home about. The architecture is however beautiful.

It is a shopping complex in the centre of Amsterdam. It has remarkable architecture both from the inside and the outside. A plus about Magna Plaza is that you can use the restrooms here for 0.50 Euros, which is half of what you'd pay to...More

Blunt shopping centre in the heart of Amsterdam. The building was a post office then converted into a shopping centre. Architecture wise it has extraordinary facade and interior but as shopping centre it is blunt. Nothing to remind the old post office just shops you...More
