In the busiest shopping street in Amsterdam, the Kalverstraat, you can find many well-known and large fashion brands. One of the highlights here is the Kalvertoren: a tower of steel and glass, where you have a breathtaking view from the Blue Amsterdam restaurant on the top floor. A number of shops are hidden in the three-storey center. Here you can buy clothes, cosmetics, accessories and sports products. Also visit HEMA, an iconic Dutch store that sells affordable clothing and interior products.

Indoor Mall in Amstelveen Centre

The shopping center of Amstelveen, Amstelveen Stadshart, close to Amsterdam, consists of a number of covered shopping centers that are linked to each other by cozy squares full of restaurants. That way you can combine your day of shopping with a nice lunch. In this mall there is something for everyone, such as a large Bijenkorf, nice clothing stores such as Zara and H&M and special pop-up stores where you can find the nicest things. The Stadshart of Amstelveen is definitely worth planning a shopping day when visiting Amsterdam this fall and winter!

Close to Villa Arena, you will find Ikea. This store needs no introduction. The Scandinavian chain that sells home-made furniture and living items in a warehouse-like space is always nice to visit. They have also a restaurant with cheap meals, so do not worry if you are hungry!
