Amsterdam Oud-Zuid's main shopping streets

Amsterdam's most luxury shopping street -- the PC Hooftstraat -- is home to high-end clothing (Chanel, Gucci, Hermés, Louis Vuitton), jewelry (Chopard, Cartier) and specialty (Mont Blanc, Henckels) stores, as well as several boutiques selling more luxury labels.

Van Baerlestraat features chic names like Pauw and Vanilia. Beethovenstraat, along the eastern border of this neighborhood, boasts a row of women's, men's and children's chic shops. Don't miss Cornelis Schuytstraat and its trendy boutiques and home stores for a special Dutch outfit or gift.

Cornelis Schuytstraat

The Cornelis Schuytstraat is known for its high end and stylish stores, with owners who specialise in exclusivity and trendy goods. With its hardware and grocery store, this is certainly not a street that is 'a dime a dozen'.


Every Saturday the zuiderMRKT takes place at the crossroads of Jacob Obrechtstraat and Johannes Verhulststraat. The zuiderMRKT is a small, cozy, weekly market, which is organised by enthusiastic residents who live in the Oud-Zuid neighborhood.
