It took a couple of years, but finally it’s open again. The Utrechtsestraat is one of Amsterdam’s best shopping streets. Mostly because there are no big chains: you’ll only encounter unique specialist stores. The street was closed for all traffic during more than two years, even for important Tram Line 4. But now with new rails, new sewage in the street, new bridges over the canals, you can stroll again over this wonderful street.
