Just another open air flea market, it's more for locals than a tourist place! an energetic atmosphere, brimming with vendors who offer an assortment of items, everything from bicycles and furniture to second-hand clothes, art, books, electronics, quirky knick-knacks and more.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

trams are well set up for anyone with mobility issues.Not used the cruise terminal, but there is a tram stop by the market, and trams take you to many locations in central Amsterdam.
