On the first floor there is a big hall where in season you can find a huge Christmas tree overlooking the other floors. Everything you are looking for, you can buy... More

Great for a bit of shopping in Amsterdam! It's like the Dutch Selfridges/ Harvey nicks. Great designer and high street brands with a more casual feel to it. Dressed up lovely got Christmas at the minute too. Worth a visit but be careful as prices seemed slightly higher than the UK maybe due to the low currency exchange I'm not... More

This department store is the Dutch Harrods. The building is beautiful, the store is very organised. It is always an inspiration. The brands sold are premium, the help is fantastic. I love the department with kitchen utensils. Really great.

This is a must for shoppers to Amsterdam. Fabulously designer with all famous makes under one roof. Worth a visit, but make sure you have plenty of euros handy.

Great shopping mall inside a wonderful building in Dam Square. Prices make your visit more for delight than for a proper use, still the beauty of the building itself should make you visit it anyway.

If you're looking for all the high end fashion designers; this is your stop in central Amsterdam. Could be London, Paris or New York with all the top boutiques; Men's one flight up; Women two flights up. If you catch one of the sales, that works, just like all the other high end places. Nice store, as you would expect,... More

If you are looking for fashionable department store this is the place to be. Some of the high end designer good I haven't seen anywhere else. Some goods are little bit expensive. But is worth it. I highly recommend to check the place out if you are not even buying.

Good store to meander through if you're looking for high quality international brands of clothing and accessories. I like Hugo Boss and Ted Baker products, and they have a good selection of both. Didn't buy anything, but fun to browse.

It appears to just be a department store for high end designer goods, and all very expensive. The outside of the building is nice but that's about the only plus point really.

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.
