Fodor's Review

Possibly the largest bookstore in Amsterdam, this is a true haven for book hunters. Every floor stocks tomes in various languages, across all genres, and covering many subjects. The shop is known for its large nonfiction collection of popular titles at bargain prices, and upstairs floors have a humongous antiquarian book section.
