Amsterdam Antiquecenter

Antiekcentrum Amsterdam (previously De Looier) is an antique market, which takes almost the whole block of houses between Looiersgracht and Elandsgracht – all of them under one roof, as this is one of the few covered markets in Amsterdam. Warm in winter, dusty in the summer, this place seems a paradise for all kind of collectors: antique furniture, old paintings, used watches, old jewelry, silverware, toys, curiosa. Complicated narrow corridors will lead you through 73 stands with antiques and curiosa. Additionally on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday private people may rent a small tables and trade with their collections.

It might happen during the week, which the stand you are interested in is shortly closed. A special service from the reception desk will help you out. The same goes for the objects exhibited in one of the 95 showcases. It has been accepted at Antiekcentrum Amsterdam, to negotiate the prices.
