"The biggest touristtrap is the..." Netherlands Tourist Trap Tip by lette

Netherlands Tourist Traps: 76 reviews and 53 photos

The biggest touristtrap is the shoppingcentre in Amsterdam. Get out of the mainstreets as the Kalverstraat, the Leidsestraat en the Nieuwendijk avoid the Rokin and the Spui. Look for the smaller streets a few steps away from the centre especially the Jordaan is a very nice area. For shopping it's much nicer to go to Haarlem or Alkmaar. Both close to Amsterdam and easily reachable by train.
