We are lovers of flea markets, carbooties and second hand stalls. Waterlooplein has a mixture of old and new items on sale. It was fun scrounging through the piles of cloths at a euro an item looking for the perfect garment. Haggling is encouraged and...More

We found ourselves in Waterlooplein on our way to Museum het Rembrandthuis, and, in much the same way that Rembrandthuis shows you how the great artist lived, Waterlooplein tells much of the culture of Amsterdam today. Stalls were displaying all sorts of ‘alternative’ clothes and...More

Nearby the Rembrandt Museum and only 15 min away from the Dam Square walking. Easy to spot, it is a nice long market by the canal. You can find a little bit of just about everything but mainly some really lovely friendly sellers who will...More

Our guide book raved about this market, I will be honest I have seen better stuff at my local car boot. As soon as the traders find out your British they charge more. Would not recommend a visit

This market had a myriad of things you could buy from used clothes to rugs. There are plenty of souvenirs that you can purchase such as fridge magnets and t-shirts. It's worth a look but the prices did seem a bit steep.

Take your time to walk through the antique stalls and chat to the stall owners. Love the space and the location. Lots of coffee shops close by to take a break.

Located not to far from city central, this market was the best that we saw in our 5 day ramble around Amsterdam. As you should expect from a market, plenty of rubbish mixed with some items that you find useful and acquire. A real general...More

I went here a few weeks ago, on admittedly a fairly damp Friday noon, however, the market was very disappointing. There were only a few stalls, mainly selling touristy things that you could get anywhere. One of the shopkeepers of the more unique stalls was...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

trams are well set up for anyone with mobility issues.Not used the cruise terminal, but there is a tram stop by the market, and trams take you to many locations in central Amsterdam.
