    Nine Little Streets: From Art Deco to De Witte Tanden Winkel

    De Witte Tandenwinkel
    1 more image

    The Nine Little Streets (Wijde Heisteeg, Huidenstraat, Runstraat, Oude Spiegelstraat, Wolvenstraat, Berenstraat, Gasthuismolensteeg, Hartenstraat and Reestraat) house a number of unique shops.

    Art Deco at the Wolvenstraat 20 is one you should not miss.

    The window of the Witte Tanden Winkel at the Runstraat 5 is also a must.

    2009 update: A tenth little street has been added to the nine existing ones.

    What to buy: Those special goodies.

    9 Straatjes/ Nine Little Streets: Little streets with very special atmosphere

    by IceBear7 Updated May 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping in the 9 Straatjes in Amsterdam

    The 9 little streets are running parallel toeach other between Singel and Prinsengracht in the western part of the city center. You don't find the international stores like H&M or body shop here but tiny individual unique shops, and also little bars and cafes. This area is one of my favorite places in Amsterdam. Just wonderful to walk around, have a look in the shops, have a coffee, check out a gallery and do some shopping.

    In the picture you see a shop selling travel books only, located at the corner Oude Spiegelstraat/ Singel.

    The streets in that are are Reestr., Hartenstr., Gasthuismolenst., Berenstr., Wolvenstr., Oude Spiegelstr. , Runstr. , Huidenstr. and Wijde Heisteeg.. They have a little website listing all the shops, galleries, cafes etc, show a map and tell you a bit (in English) about the history of the area.

    Nine Little Streets: Cosy unique shopping streets

    by Charlotte121 Written Jun 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The area between the Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht contains an intimate shopping centre known as ‘De 9 Straatjes’ (The 9 Streets). The nine picturesque small streets connecting the canals are filled with one-of-a-kind small shops, vintage stores, alternative fashion, specialised theme stores and galleries. This part of the city centre is very popular among shoppers on a search for unique products and gifts. The streets are also an excellent location for a good cup of coffee and a short escape from the busier streets of Amsterdam.

    H. J. van de Kerkhof - Fournituren: Former Haberdashery shop - Gone!

    H. J. van de Kerkhof - Fournituren

    In an early 2010 trip I discovered this wondeful shop was closed and being transformed into who knows what?

    H. J. van de Kerkhof - Fournituren was an authentic shop supplying everything what you need for making cloths, curtains and more. There was so much stuff stashed in this small shop. Where did it all go?
