Amsterdam’s answer to Harrods and Bloomingdales is a four-story shopping addict’s dream in the Old Center, selling anything from Gucci belts to Chanel headphones under one roof. The city’s most prestigious and expensive department store is a luxurious delight, with high-brand designs such as Missoni and Alexander Wang for women as well as Petit Bateau and Hilfiger for kids, and Armani or Nike sports gear for men-about-town. A duty-free shopping service allows overseas visitors to claim their tax back on leaving the country.
