This street is great for shopping, but it's very crowded. You'll find any types of shops here, but Amsterdam is not a cheap city, so I didn't really see the point in buying something that I can buy at home for the same price.

Could almost be any pedestrianised shopping street anywhere. Crowded, down-market high street with all the noise I'd expect .

Pedestrianised shopping area which does seem to to be going more and more upmarket each time we visit Amsterdam. Nothing that you can't get in most European cities though.

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.

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
