We went down this street to visit the Marqt. Quite a busy little street. Lots of "coffee shops" but also lots of other tourist shops and restaurants.

Convenient to Central Station but filled with many independent stores selling all manner of things. Some excellent shoe stores, women's clothing stores, bakeries, and coffee shops, supermarket, ATM machines - there is something for everyone. A little more authentic than the tourist areas.

Lovely part of a/dam. Less busier than Dam Square and quitr a bit quieter than Leidseplein at night. Has a good few coffee shops if that's your thing and lots of nice quirky shops.

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
