Re: heading to the city for a break and a bit of shopping!

Not sure what you mean? As a fashion item, it's not in fashion.

As a protection against rain: a cheap shop like Zeeman.
Usually souvenir shops will sell them too, along with umbrella's, etc.
If you arrive in Amsterdam by train and you walk down Damrak (which is the first street you will walk after leaving Central Station) then there's plenty of souvenir shops.

For locations Zeeman, see here:

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Fashion in Amsterdam

by vtnyc

Here are some pics I was able to catch of people in Amsterdam.

I always think its neat to compare the styles of people from the great cities of the world.

These pics are but a small sampling of how people dress in Amsterdam.

The best places, in my limited experience, to see local fashion are Vondel Park, P.C. Hooftstraat, and The Pijp.

Anne Frank House

by dragontml

A museum with a story...

The Secret Annex, home to Anne Frank for the twenty-five months she was in hiding and the place where she wrote her diary.

Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt in 1929 and the Frank family moved to Amsterdam in 1933 when National-Socialist party led by Adolf Hitler came to power. Amsterdam was a safe haven until 1940, when Germany occupied the Netherlands. On July 6 1942, the Frank family went into hiding and a week later, they were joined by another family. The people in hiding lived in the backpart of the house.

Situated near the canal-side house at 263 Prinsengracht, where the people in hiding lived, consists of two sections, the front part of the house and the back part, often referred to as the Annex.

Otto Frank's business was located in the front part of the house. The warehouse was on the ground floor and above that are the offices and storerooms.

The hiding place was betrayed on August 4 1944, not known by whom, the people in hiding were deported. Anne Frank dies of typhus and deprivation in Bergen - Belsen. Only Otto Frank survived the extermination camps.

Best Canal Cruise in Amsterdam

by Melodee50

A canal cruise while in Amsterdam is mandatory, but the size of the boat you ride in and canal's you cruise down are not.

The St. Nicolaas Boat Club offers a canal cruise on a boat that will hold around ten people, has no glass top, and can maneuver through canals the big boats cannot navigate. You sign up for the ride at Boom Chicago in the Leidseplein, which is a fabulous part of Amsterdam and you should be there anyway, as far as I'm concerned. They are rather casual about the whole thing, completely unlike the very business-like, glass-covered, tourist-filled canal boats you find along the Damrak.

Your pilot will ask what you would like to see. We glided past the tourists waiting in line to get in the Anne Frank's house then wound our way through small canals lined with houseboats lined with potted flowers in full bloom-a definitive riot of color. We passed houses with tiny patios facing the canals.

You are welcome to bring refreshments and your favorite intoxicant along - Looza, Oranjina, Heineken, Super Silver Haze. It is an altogether refreshing, relaxing way to see Amsterdam. Amsterdam is as much a part of me as my own home town. I feel about it as Gertrude Stein did of Paris. I fell completely in love with Amsterdam the first day and now have a burning desire to live there for a little while during my lifetime.

To pick a best memory would be like picking a favorite child. Was it lovely dinners with my B&B host? Was it the energy I discovered in the Leidseplein? Was it the acceptance I got that I didn't even know I needed when I sat in my first coffeeshop? Was it the trees lining the canals with their bright green leaves and dark bark? The list of fond memories is lenghthy; I cannot pick a fondest.

Living Statue

by Jschukal

Check out this guy, he's a living statue. They are all over Europe, I don't really get it but people give them money. I give him credit, he was very much like a statue. So much so...a bird landed on his shoulder and left him a surprise. all right, maybe not. But, it could happen.

Post Offices

by pieter_jan_v

One remark I got from a visitor from abroad was that he was unable to locate a post office downtown.

Things have changed over the years. The former Head Office behind the Royal Palace has been transformed into the Magna Plaza shopping Center and the distribution center at the Central Station has lost its function, because all mail is distributed by road.

The former PTT was split up into private post and telephone companies. The post is now handled by TNT.

Post facilities are often an integral part in a book- or cigarette shop and not always easy to identify from the outside.

Here are the downtown post shops:
-Singel 250
-Waterlooplein 10
-Kerkstraat 167
-Haarlemmerdijk 97-103
