What is the best spot to experience the real Amsterdam sense of humor, the Amsterdam atmosphere and conviviality? Right, that would be the Albert Cuyp! A day in Amsterdam is just not complete without visiting the most popular market of the Netherlands! The ‘Cuyp’ has been there since 1905 and is still immensely popular, even a century later. The regular folks visit it from Amsterdam, but also bargain hunters, windows shoppers, day trippers, tourists… practically anyone!
Fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, flowers, and plants: you’ll all find them at the Albert Cuyp. And also gorgeous fabrics, trendy clothing, textile, nice leather goods, and jewelry.
Enjoy a nice herring at the fish stand or get yourself a bag of fresh syrup waffles to enjoy at home. Visit a nice, old-fashioned coffee house or a super modern café for a cup of coffee. The statue of André Hazes can be found on the corner of the Eerste Sweelinckstraat.
With 260 stands, the Albert Cuyp is the largest day market in Europe. A place where there’s always something new to see!
