Lovely Haarlemmerbuurt

Within walking distance of Amsterdam Centraal Station, we find one of the loveliest shopping streets in the city: Haarlemmerstraat & Haarlemmerdijk. No two stores are the same. Here, you’ll find independent, unique businesses such as boutiques, speciality stores, salons and restaurants.

“No two shops are the same in the Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk. It’s just one lovely boutique or speciality store after another.”

Where to begin in these inviting shopping streets? Well, a good place is Haarlemmerplein where there’s an organic market each Wednesday. From here, you can walk along Haarlemmerdijk which changes its name to Haarlemmerstraat as it crosses Prinsengracht. A few nice shops to bear in mind: Meeuwig & Zn for olive oil, I love Vintage for themed party gear and Suhka for posters with hand-written messages to make you smile. Don’t miss the side streets and their hidden gems.

Hey, did you know?

You get a view of the Haarlemmerpoort from Haarlemmerplein. The port was rebuilt five times in all since every time the city expanded, it had to move up a little to the west towards Haarlem.
