Christmas shopping in Amsterdam

As you can well imagine from a capital city, Amsterdam is well-stocked for shops. In terms of sheer variety, the Dutch capital has it all, from huge international department stores to vintage, antique and boutique gift shopping.

There are also market stalls which pop up around the city, particularly on Leidseplein and Koningsplein, for you to explore as you warm up with a gluhwein or take a spin on the ice-rink.
