It looks very expensive, at the enterance- because of shops like Lacost and more designers shops. But inside and upstairs you will finda huge music shop, movie shop, Yankee candles and a lot of souveniers, and also the VAT refund

I had lunch at Sissy Boy Daily at the basement. Good service and food. Explored the building after lunch and was greatly disappointed. Limited variety and number of shops. Entry to toilet on level 2 is chargeable.

I always like this neo gothic building. It was former Post Office Headquarter of Amsterdam. I used to come here in the past. You will see more when you are looking for the detail. The shops are not exceptional, you can find them somewhere else....More

Like many posts have already claimed, the building itself is well worth a visit. The shops were individual and well placed. It had an eclectic vibe and certainly when I visited it was uncrowned and easy to shop uninterrupted.

Just off Dam Square I'm always drawn into the shopping mall but never seem to buy which says something. Over several floors there are a number of outlets so give it a try. You may be luckier then me

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
