AMSTERDAM: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP SLEEP TIPS OUT OF TOWN

SHOP

De Pijp and the Albert Cuypmarket

If you’re in Amsterdam for a bit longer ‘de Pijp’ is a neighbourhood that shouldn’t be missed.  It’s really up and coming, and the mix between shabby and chic is something that I love!  I’m not going to describe every single shop I like in de Pijp, but I’m sure you’ll find some treasures browsing the little streets of this artistic and multi-culural neighbourhood!  What you shouldn’t miss is one of Amsterdam’s most famous markets, the Albert Cuypmarket. Over one hundred years old, this market is open six days a week (closed on Sundays) and offers everything from fresh fish, vegetables and cheeses to clothes, wigs and incense.  But I love this market most for it’s cute fabrics and haberdashery!  It’s best to go on weekdays, as on Saturday it can be very busy.  And don’t forget to try one of those freshly baked syrup waffles, they’re to die for!  (But be careful not to give them to your kids too quickly;  they’re piping hot!!)
