Amsterdam, The Netherlands: New Tourist Shops Verboden PDF Print E-mail


One of the world’s favorite cities of your travel4seniors.com editor is clamping down on a favorite activity. Whenever there to wander the streets, especially at holiday season, we enjoy shopping for the latest home-grown Dutch souvenirs.

However, the city council has determined there are just too many of the shops and attract too many tourists to crowd the streets. Because they declare it’s inconveniencing the local citizens, there can be no new shops. However, since Amsterdam’s economy depends on healthy tourism, the ban doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense. So, next time in Amsterdam, you’ll just have to be content to visit the oldest established permanent tourist bordellos and pot shops.
