Stepping through this store's door made me feel like a kid again. I might have bought a few too many items here, but I still smile like a kid when I look at them. And to think I went here by accident... no, I think...More

Thanks Jonas! ... until next time at the Otherist ... 🙃 🐙
Looking for a unique gift? or a crazy conversation piece for your home? Look no further. A bit on the pricey side, but some wonderful time to be had browsing this crazy collection of bugs, ceramics and etc.. Definitely worth a visit.
I walked by this shop at night when it was closed and decided and had to come back the next day to go inside. If you like things found in nature turned into art, and other oddities, this is the place for you.
The Otherist is like Marmite. Either you'll love it or you'll hate it! If glass encased bugs and insects are just what you need as your lounge conversation piece, this is the place for you.

Walked in as we happened to walk along the street. Didn't buy anything, but they definitely had some very interesting items. Beautiful framed butterflies, beetles, crabs, stick bugs, old glasses, lovely jewelry, etc. Everything was also artfully displayed. The man working there was very friendly...More
If Lewis Carroll opened up his own shop, it would be The Otherist. It's such a magical place, filled with breathtaking art work, delicate porcelain, antique, design books, sophisticated jewellery and so much more. You really enter another world and you are hardly to take...More
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
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
