  • Are the best malls those with outstanding architectural design? Perhaps one could apply that here, in which great shopping and dining is housed in a magnificent work of historic design. See my photo.....  more

  • Beautiful building from the outside and inside! For shopping purposes I would definitely not go there due to it being a dead mall. Only stores under construction or empty spaces.
  • A 5-star review purely for the magnificence of this historic building (was the central post office for Amsterdam) and its interior, all very well maintained inside and out. This shopping centre has seen better days and hopefully post-pandemic more shops will return and the food court on the top level will reopen. Fingers crossed. For now it's worth a visit even just to marvel at the architecture. Magnificent!
