Amsterdam Shopping on Kalverstraat

Want to experience the best of Amsterdam shopping? Head to the famous Kalverstraat in the center of the city!

The busy Kalverstraat is not to be missed. Amsterdam is a great place to shop even though it is not the prime reason why millions of tourists visit this beautiful city year after year. If you are looking for more upper class establishments then the Kalverstraat is the place for you. When it’s cold and rainy, try the Kalvertoren – the Kalverstraat shopping centre.

Did you know that the Kalverstraat, which means Street of the Calves, was once a calf market? Until the 17th century, the Dutch used it for this purpose. Now this street is considered to be one of the most up-scale shopping streets in the Netherlands. In the Dutch version of the well known Monopoly game, the Kalverstraat is the most expensive street of all, doesn’t that say enough?
