UtrechtsestraatUtrechtsestraat - In between Rembrandtsquare and Frederiksquare you'll find shopping street the Utrechtsestraat. This busy street has enough specialty stores and boutiques to make it worth a look. Best for design items, gadgets, shoes and clothes.

The best record shop in town called Concetro is located in the Utrechtsestraat on #52-60. Also located here is a shop called 'In de Keuken', which means 'in the kitchen'. As the name may suggest, it's a specialty kitchen supply store that doubles as a posh restaurant. 

With very narrow sidewalks, trams passing in the middle and noisy traffic, it's a very busy street. But the shops there are quiet, interesting and close to one another. Several good restaurants and excellent wine shops are located at the Utrechtsestraat as well.

The small street is close to the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum,and is home to high-end clothing, like Chanel, Gucci, Hermés and Louis Vuitton, jewelry, like Chopard and Cartier and specialty stores, like Mont Blanc and Henckels.

In 2008 G-Star opened a flagship store and in 2009 Tiffany & Co also chose the P.C. Hooftstraat as a location for one of their stores.

Hardly anywhere else in Europe will you see such a small street with so many beautiful and expensive cars parked one by another.
