Situated in the former Jewish quarter, the Waterlooplein market and dates back to 1885, when it was open every day except the Sabbath. These days you can wander through this Amsterdam flea market every day except for Sundays and public holidays. Every stall has something different on offer, including (second-hand) clothes, antiques, knick-knacks, souvenirs, bicycle parts and much more. It’s situated right beside Amsterdam City Hall, surrounded by attractions such as the Rembrandt House Museum, Dutch National Opera & Ballet and the River Amstel.
