Anyone crazy for Flea Market? Look at this!

If you like going around for markets, Amsterdam is surely a good place. There are ancient markets, now full of colored and funny people, where you can find almost anything. In my markets tour, I was really impressed by Waterlooplein Flea Market.

This is traditionally the oldest and most interesting market of Amsterdam connected with the youth culture: it is a place for second hand goods and antiques, and full of general bric-a-brac.

You can buy here trendy clothes, old objects, lamps, military uniforms, handcraft from Asia and Africa, old books: almost anything with competitive prices!

The flea market is in the former Jewish quarter and dates back to 1893, when it was open every day except the Sabbath.

These days the Waterlooplein market is open every day except for Sundays and public holidays from 10 am to 6 pm.

It’s served by trams and the subway. If you’re driving, you could park at the Town Hall for a fee, so it'a very easy to reach.

The atmosphere is warm and the location really nice.

Don't miss it!
