Oudemanhuis Book Market information
Secondhand books weigh down the tables in the atmospheric covered alleyway between Oudezijds Achterburgwal and Kloveniersburgwal, where you'll rub tweed-patched elbows with University of Amsterdam professors thumbing through volumes of Marx, Aristotle and other classics. Old posters, maps and sheet music are for sale, too. Most tomes are in Dutch, though you'll find a few in English mixed in.
