The only thing worth seeing is the building. It's beautiful and you can see the old structures like water fountains still inside the corridors. The beautiful chandelier in the centre is just amazing. That's all. Walk in have a look around and come back. Don't...More

I was shocked about charging 1 Euro for a restroom. no special shops. We only went here as it was raining outside.

A shopping mall...public restrooms, air conditioned, a place to eat, a souvenir shop...what more could anyone ask for!!! During our walking around, we discovered the old stairs and stained glass windows...so much to see if you take the time.

Worth a look/glimpse inside as the building. The prices are high although there were some reductions in a couple of shops. €1 to use the public toilet which is pure exploitation, plus they are located on the top floor. In my view, fine for a...More

Personally I wouldn't call this a shopping mall. It's tiny and it makes you feel so cramped inside, (plus there is no exciting shop in it). There are several floors. there is a nice chandelier in the middle of the hall, a good cheese shop...More

Fancy shopping mall - great building but disappointing shopping inside. Over priced name brand shops - great for window shopping not much else!

This shopping complex is held out to be one of the most go destinations for serious upmarket shoppers in Amsterdam. Frankly it’s a disappointment. There are not a lot of shops. I walked around the lot in under 20 minutes. There are no brands of...More

It looks really nice from the inside. It used to be the old post office of Amsterdam and you can see some great details still being there. If you're looking to shop it's better to go to the Bijenkorf. The only nice shop is Cavallaro...More

Even if you are not interested in shopping you should give this shopping centre a visit as both the exterior and interior are a sight to behold.

The architecture of the buildings in Magna Plaza were magnificent. The streets were full of people walking, even though it was drizzling outside. The plaza is located near quite a few attractions. There is the ferris wheel right around the corner, as well as Ripley's...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
