Bijenkorf, HEMA, V&D...: "Department stores" Top 5 Page for this destination Netherlands Shopping Tip by ATLC

Netherlands Shopping: 57 reviews and 55 photos


Dutch department stores are nice places to browse.
Bijenkorf is definitely the most stylish
HEMA is cheap, convenient and they have a lot of fun and good products uniquely their own. The HEMA sausage is often considered the best "gerookte worst" (smoked sausage) to go with Dutch "stamppot" (mash).
Vroom & Dreessmann is something in between.
HEMA and V&D you will find in most larger cities. Bijenkorf only in the largest cities like Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Eindhoven...

What to buy: Well, it's a departmentstore. So....anything
