This is a bustling hustling place. Not my cup of tea. I like shopping but not crowds. There are tons of shops, but I didn't get anything in any of the ones I entered. I did get some good ice cream though.

Jammed full of people on a Saturday afternoon, this is the major shopping street, stretches for a long distance with lots of the stores you know, plus some unique ones. I found the crowds overwhelming.

There was a time, long ago, that the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam was the premium shopping street in the Netherlands. The Kalverstraat even was the most expensive street in the Dutch version of Monopoly. But I think that the Kalverstraat has been eclipsed by better shopping...More
