Near The Rembrandt House and the Hermitage Museum so I went there to have a look and it was very nice and interesting. You can find cheaper souvenirs and there are some nice leather bags too. You can also find some second-hand pieces of clothes...More

Amazing eclectic mix of market stalls – a brilliant way to spend a morning mooching around the stalls full of interesting vintage and bric-a-brac items. Browse some stalls and then stop for a leisurely coffee and then browse some more – if you love markets,...More

We were staying at a Hotel just around the corner from here, so walked through it most days. Lots of old clothing stalls, but also a variety of other goods and services available. Everything from cycle repairs to food outlets. very Bohemian and interesting.

It is really good fun to just wander around the Market looking at all the stalls and taking in the atmosphere. You might even find that one thing you have always been looking for. I did!

Went there as if was recommended by many visitors. In my opinion, nothing special, mostly sell souvenirs what you can buy in any shop. Just couple of stalls were selling vintage accessories.Lack of atmosphere.

The Waterlooplein Market is a famous flea market in Amsterdam, but, in my opinion, lacks in atmosphere. Not in the least, because one side of the Waterlooplein, between the square and the river Amstel, is dominated by the massive, box-like, modern city hall annex opera...More

Really nice market right in the centre of Amsterdam. They had really nice vintage clothing and retro bike stalls. Half of the market stalls were closed though which was a little disappointing.

A really nice market that has a vast variety of goods. Although there are a few stalls with new items, the majority is second-hand. Flea market at it's best.

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.
