I spent way too much time in this store. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing. The quirky boxes of photos were splendid to rifle through, especially the postcard ones.
Would go back first thing on the next trip, just to enjoy the beauty and...More
Located in the city center very close to all touristic attractions, this great antiquarian and 2nd hand bookshop is completely packed with printed volumes and maps arranged in apparently no order with add more charm to the bookshop. It is a real pleasure to wander,...More

The sheer amount of old books and maps here make browsing a truly daunting challenge. I love old maps and could happily spend the entire day looking through the enormous amount of history here. Availability is extensive from cheap prints to valuable originals.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
