Satur­day Stroll

LUXE City Guides - Amsterdam - - De Pijp -

This short itin­er­ary is loveli­est on a Satur­day af­ter­noon and great for peo­ple-watch­ing. Be­gin on Ger­ard Dous­traat / T: 16, 24 Al­bert Cuyp­straat / for a quick retail fix at this trio of chic stores: #84 Char­lie + Mary / char­ / has cute, casj ba­sics, #86 All The Luck In The World / alltheluck­inthe­ / is filled with pretty home­wares, and #94 Anna+ Nina (see Stand­out Stores) of­fers up fab­u­lous jew­ellery and colour­ful dé­cor. Straight ahead now is the Ger­ard Dou­plein, a busy, sunny square that’s packed on sum­mer week­ends. Now, choices: to end here, turn left at Eerste van der Hel­st­straat and plop down al­fresco at #50 De Wi­jn­bar (see Rest./re­laxed), or head straight to find the stel­lar sand­wicherie De Wasserette (see Lunch) at #27 on the next cor­ner. Or for more, take a right onto the other end of Eerste v.d. Hel­st­straat, pass­ing (or brav­ing) the busy Al­bert Cuyp­mar­ket / 020 252 4000 / al­bertcuyp­mar­, and two more blocks will lead you to the pic­nic-per­fect Sarphati­park.
