The layout of the 9 straatjes is interesting and wandering them is fun. Upmarket stores can be found and cute delis. If you are a lover of cheese, many outlets with tasting of different types of cheese encouraged! Recommended if you have time....

A great neighbourhood with lots of independent shops and tucked amongst them are some great bars and restaurants. You won’t be disappointed at strolling through the 9 streets.

9 Streets—a marketing gimmick for the small streets in Jordan. It is a special place, and the 9 streets clearly have grown to at least 16, all filled with clothing, specialized boutiques, some hair salons, many coffee shops and restaurants. Upscale all of it, but...More

This is a narrow, concentrated area of little artisan shops but it's "on the list" and therefore very crowded. Head slightly further afield (Jordaans, Spiegelstraat) for less of a crush.

We love to walk here every time we are in Amsterdam. It's a trendy, but touristic shopping area like most of old Amsterdam, and located close to another interesting neighborhood, the Jordaan, as well as the Westerkerk (where Rembrandt is buried) and Anne Frank House....More

Heard from a few people that the "9 streets" is the place to go for boutiques, shopping, cafes, etc. From all the hype I just expected more. There are a few places to eat, but they are very small with almost no outdoor seating. Plenty...More

It is definitely worth visiting De 9 Straatjes (the 9 streets). There are lots of lovely little boutique shops, cafes and bars to visit, and the streets are very pretty and give you a totally different perspective of Amsterdam.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
