The Nine Streets are just that: nine little streets and alleys in the heart of the historic canal district which, together, form a square-shaped shopping area stretching from the Singel to the Prinsengracht. They encompass: Reestraat, Hartenstraat, Gasthuis Molensteeg, Berenstraat, Wolvenstraat, Oude Spiegelstraat, Runstraat, Huidenstraat and Wijde Heisteeg. Brimming with charm, they are filled with speciality stores that purvey everything from vintage clothing and retro 1950s toasters to toothbrushes and candles galore. A wealth of coveted designer boutiques also congregate along here. It's ideal for present-hunting for others or treating yourself to a pair of unique new shoes. Dotted along the way are plenty of places to enjoy a cup of coffee, cake or a healthy lunch. Beats malls any day.
- Shopping Malls and Centers: "I always like to go to the Nine Streets for the COS store and Lou Lou Fashion."
- Best for Shopping Malls and Centers Because: De Negen Straatjes better known as "The Nine Streets" are super cozy streets with small boutiques and many cafes.
