The 5 best neighbourhood shopping streets

1) Cornelis Schuystraat

P.C. Hooftstraat is considered Amsterdam’s smartest shopping street, but you could easily argue that Cornelis Schuytstraat is much more upmarket. It’s not dominated by large chain stores, posh cars and tourists eagerly flashing their credit cards. Cornelis Schuytstraat has retained the look and feel of a neighbourhood shopping street. High-end boutiques comfortably sit next to a bakery or a grocery.
