Book stores, Amsterdam: 14 reviews and 23 photos
De Slegte is a well-known and popular Dutch chain of second hand book stores.
They claim to have more than a million books on stock and besides their popular section on the groundfloor (with new surplus books), the second hand section per subject and the studybooks on the upper floors is a visit worth while.
In June 2013 the name of the stores was changed into POLARE.
2014 update: Well the POLARE giant had a short life. It looks like most shops will return in some local form with a name from the past.
What to buy: Books (and National Geographic Magazines)
What to pay: A few bucks.
Address: Kalverstraat 48-52 - 1012 PE Amsterdam
Directions: Just 100 meters from the DAM square.
