Kalverstraat and the Leidsestraat are the two main shopping streets in Amsterdam and they are exactly what you'd hope for and expect in a major city's principal thoroughfares. There is a dizzying array of exclusive shops as well as many famous high street brands. In other words, something suitable for all kinds of shoppers. The Leidsestraat is where you will find the biggest concentration of exclusive stores, such as Karen Millen, Shoebaloo and Paul Warmer. Many people also come here for the variety of shoe shops. Kalverstraat is the most commercial street and one with a long history. If you rewind the clock back to the 14th century, farmers are walking their cows through this area on their way to market. Today, it's filled with such well-known brands as Esprit, H&M, Mexx and Zara as well as a smattering of shoe shops and popular department stores. Do hunt around for bargains while you are here, because many places price their wares competitively. In addition to fashion clothing and accessories, Kalverstraat and the Leidsestraat also turn on their specialty stores, which sell souvenirs, groceries, cheeses and luggage. When you want a break from rummaging through store shelves, relax in a welcoming café, bar or restaurant. You will also come across fast food options such as McDonalds.
