    Magna Plaza is a Grand orange & white facade built in 195-99 by dutch government architect CH Peters. The main post office & remaining complex has been converted now into a modern shopping mall. Check out hte columned galleries and the many clothing shops in this multi storey building.

    A lovely old building (used to be a post office). Inside there are a lot of (expensive) shops but even if you don't buy anything you have to have a look because of the lovely architecture! Or have a drink and a lovely sandwich in Ovidius, the 3 storey cafe at the corner.

    Shopping in Amsterdam is a lot of fun, especially because there is such a large variety in shops: exclusive brands, skate shops, tourists shops, record stores, book stores and so on. Most of the stores are located in the Kalverstraat. Luxury items can be found in Magna Plaza.

    This is the coolest looking shopping mall ever!! Most of the malls I go to are in these big, boring, drab looking buildings but I absolutely love the Magna Plaza. Apparently this was a former post office dating back to 1899 and it was converted to a shopping mall in 1990. Definitely worth a look I think.

    Do some shopping in Magna Plaza.

    This four storeyed shopping center is the most beautiful one in Amsterdam. I really like the record shop in the basement of the building. The collection of CD's is very huge and you always can find something of your choice.

    Magna Plaza is the shopping center just behind the Royal Palace. Shops are mostly expensive fashion, but it's nice to walk-up the building and see it from the top floor.

    Magna Plaza is a modern, luxurious shopping center, installed in this former post building in 1992. Nice to see from outside and if you have enough money, you can also spend some time inside.

    This fantastic department store is located behind the Dam Square. Go have a look, if not to do some shopping, at least to admire the building !
