Spent 5 hours in the Yankee candle shop and took pictures with some elephant statues. There were some pretty Christmas lights on the huge Christmas tree.

... and then leave. Eating options are limited as of the end of 2017. Not impressed by the number of shops. There used to be more options here. The building is truly gorgeous, and is decorated beautifully for the holidays, but you’ll find better boutiques...More

Even without the magnificent hanging Christmas tree in the middle, the beautifully restored and tiled building is still lovely to behold. Take the elevator up to the second floor for a view backwards and down. Just great !

An impressive looking building from the outside but not all that impressive inside. Its a mall of premium brands and boutiques. High end expensive mostly. Annoyingly you have to pay 1eur to go to the toilet.

Small gift and shopping mall with limited brands shops. The place has magnificent architecture but is half empty on its 3 floor. Not bad compared to the other Amsterdam

Beautiful building with an amazing view when you walk in the door of a gorgeous marble floor and a stunning looking chandelier.

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
