Insta-Amsterdam: Best Shops in East Amsterdam


We love exploring the cities we call home through your eyes; in this Insta-round up, we are discovering the best shops around East Amsterdam and seeing all they have to offer.

Amsterdam is a city that encapsulates cool at its core; from attracting all travel tribes to the get-out-of-my-way cyclists, Amsterdam has a strong yet understated air of unruffled forte in its DNA.

Even though everyone is looking for the next best thing in the centre, seasoned Amsterdamers know that the up-and-coming East (or Oost) is the place to be. The bustling area surrounding Oosterpark has become a mecca of experimental cuisines, hidden treasure shops and lifestyle brands that you will fall in love with!
