Kalverstraat Tours

One of the busiest shopping streets in Amsterdam, Kalverstraat is known for its many boutiques and shops — over 160 to be exact. The pedestrian street is lined with various retailers today, but retains its name from the cattle market that had been held here since the 14th century. There’s a mix of local small stores and larger international brands, and at a variety of price points. Though with high-end options, this has become the most expensive street in the Netherlands. It’s at the heart of Amsterdam life, with many restaurants, clubs, museums, and of course, shops.

Fashion and clothing are the main shopping draws on Kalverstraat, but you’ll also find specialty stores with food, art, and souvenirs. It’s a great place to simply stroll and take in the surroundings. Local cafes and restaurants can be found throughout when you need a place to relax. A walk on the famous street is a must for any walking tour of the city.
