Magna Plaza, Amsterdam
The building itself - the former Central Post Office - is impressive, and Magna Plaza is a really big department store with lots to choose from in models and prices.
Check out its nice website for details of the opening hours, stores etc.
It is located downtown, very close to the Dam. The building is very nice. There is a lot of variety inside the mall.
What to pay: Some prices are high as this shopping centre is downtown and many tourists go, but you still can catch a good "SALE".
This is the first shopping mall in Amsterdam (opened in 1992).
It was originally a head post office building. This original post office was built on this spot in 1748. It was closed in 1854, demolished, and then in 1899 architect C.P. Peters built in Neo Gothic style the building you see today.
There are abt 40 shops with restaurants spread out over four floors.
Magna Plaza is a high quality shopping mall open 7 days a week.
What to buy: There is a mix of all kind products from jewellery to interior decoration, from casual to classic clothing, from children's clothing to educational toys.
What to pay: More than avarage
I like to go to this place just for the building alone. Magne Plaza is a shopping centre very close to Dam Square. It is housed in a beautiful building that dates back to 1755. The building used to be the main post office in Amsterdam.
Inside you will find a great number of shops. Most shops are a bit more expensive then average. You'll find shops here that offer clothes, jewelry, souvenirs, DVD's and cosmetics.
This remarkable building in neo-gothic and neo-renaissance style used to be the main post-office in Amsterdam. The construction was lead under state-architect C.H. Peters and holds a central hall with on either side two stories high arcades. The public part used to be only at groundlevel, as on the first (and higher floors) offices of the PTT (Post Telephone Telegraph-company) were situated. Now-a-days the building has been turned (in Swedish project) to a shopping centre, with a very limited break down of the monumental value of the building. In 1992 it was opened as “Magna Plaza” and it’s central situation (right behind the royal palace) makes it very popular by visitors to Amsterdam centre.
Magna Plaza is a shopping centre just behind Nieuwe Kerk (Dam Square). Here you will find shops where locals go to, so it will be a wiser choice than those touristy shops on Damrak.
Magna Plaza is open every day except holidays:
> Sunday: noon to 7pm
> Monday: 11am to 7pm
> Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: 10am to 7pm
> Thursday: 10am to 9pm
Magna Plaza houses quite some shops. It is a mall with outlets by for example Björn Borg, Laundry Industry and many other big brands. You walk along a gallery and there are also some places along the galleries where you have have a drink or something to eat.
What to pay: Most shops are quite exclusive so you should bring a lot of money if intending to shop here.
first virgen music was inside this shopping centre. but now i dont go into the shopping centre no more. the last time i was here it was for rodolfo's to buy inlineskates a few years ago.
the building is beautifull from outside before it was a postoffice (the postoffice moved to the singel)
This Renaissance building was designed by Peters at the end of the 19th century.
For some time this was the General Post Office, but in 1990 it was turned into the shopping mall.
This magnificent neo-Gothic shopping center is located behind the Palace next to Dam square. It is the main shopping center in the old city.
Magna Plaza is a small Mall with quality shops of all kind. The building was the old Main Post Office.
