In the winter when you're waiting for the tram just in front of this shopping centre and suddently raining very hard, Magna Plaza is the best place to hide. You're dry, warm and you can enjoy window shopping or just walking around in this beautiful building. Most of the shops are branded fashionshops though you can find some other shops... More

I cannot say that the stores inside were very interesting but the building itself is so beautiful that it's worth going just to see it with your own eyes.

I can't say much for the shopping (except for the Yankee Candle store), but the giant suspended Christmas tree was beautiful, and it's worth going in to see the beautiful architecture.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
