It looks really nice from the inside. It used to be the old post office of Amsterdam and you can see some great details still being there. If you're looking to shop it's better to go to the Bijenkorf. The only nice shop is Cavallaro...More

The architecture of the buildings in Magna Plaza were magnificent. The streets were full of people walking, even though it was drizzling outside. The plaza is located near quite a few attractions. There is the ferris wheel right around the corner, as well as Ripley's...More

Although the exterior was quite extravagant, the shops within definitely did not match up to the facade. Limited variety, overly-inflated prices and the complete lack of atmosphere made us want to leave rather than shop. I wouldn't waste my time here unless you just have...More

We went into this former post office [ you can still see the mail slots in the outside wall ] that had been lovingly renovated and reborn as a department store. Even if you don't buy anything , it's worth the trip inside and up...More

In a beautiful building you can find several shops. One sells cheeses and other sell bags. On a rainy day you 'll find yourself sheltered and after shopping you can stay in for a coffee treat.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
