Haarlemmerstraat is a little bit more traditional Amsterdam. It has narrow tall houses some bars and cafes but not overly commercialized that is aimed at tourists.

Love Haarlemstraat. Collection of varying shops to catch the eye. Something for everyone. Always bustling with life, great for people watching. Lovely to stroll down.

Haarlemmerstraat is much more than a soulless shopping street but a street that has a real vibe to it. It's got a really nice look to it with it's narrow streets and even narrower tall houses that Amsterdam is famous for. That said there are...More

I judged the Haarlemmerstraat and -dijk still a "real" street in 2015 because of its local shops for local residents. Those local shops are disappearing quickly now and replaced by "hebbedingetjes" (cute to have but useless) shops for visitors. This is not an improvement.

Between Singel & Prinsengracht, this one-way street has lots of independent shops. Nice to wander along and pop into one of the lovely coffee shops too.

This is a less traveled somewhat overlooked area of Amsterdam. Most people leave Centraal and go south. That is the direction of the trams, to Damrak, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein, etc, but to the west is this street and neighborhood. Not unlike other areas of Amsterdam, but...More

Close to the train station this area of Amsterdam has a nice feel to it - narrower streets, nice architecture - probably like it was in the middle of the 1900's.

I recently got the train from Amsterdam to Haarlem for the day. We had lunch in the square and watched the world go by. We also done the windmill tour which was great for €3.50. Can't wait to return!
