Amsterdam Things to Do: 3,590 reviews and 6,001 photos


So we chose Rokin to walk. Here I pointed out to Cuckoo the starting point of my favourite boat tour by Rederij Kooij across from Muntplein on the other side of tbe bridge.

Rokin has some very nice shoe shops! Jan Jansen, famous Dutch shoe designer (although he seems more acclaimed in Germany than in The Netherlands). Some very nice fashion shops too.

I popped into the shoe shops quickly to have a look at the latest designs.

And then there is Hajenius (see Shopping tips), the mecca of cigars and tobacco. Ther is a special atmosphere here. Almost reverend. But nobody bothers you while you go to the back of the store to see the cigar cabinets, lockers, smoking rooms and library.

Address: Rokin
