Shopping in the 9 Straatjes (Nine streets)
The ‘9 straatjes’ means the little 9 streets, a small neighborhood on the west side of the city center. It’s an area which consists of 9 streets located between the canals Keizersgracht, Herengracht, Singel and Prinsengracht.
The shops are located in those typical old buildings in Amsterdam. This part in Amsterdam was constructed back in the 17the century. It is not a crowded shopping area like the Kalverstraat, here you shop at ease.
Vintage stores at 9 straatjes
Don’t expect to find some major brand stores here. You will not find them here. Instead, you will find little vintage stores and 2nd hand clothes.
Coffee or lunch
The area is provided with cozy coffee bars where you can just relax and have a coffee from a barista. Or just have a lunch in one of the small restaurants for a healthy lunch.
Apart from clothing and shoes, take a look at the art shops, bookstores and jewellery shops.
