The passage


The "Passage" in the city centre (just around the corner of the Buitenhof) is the oldest shopping arcade in the city (opened in 1885), and was then fully renovated in 2007. It is designed in a neo-Renaissance style and is a unique street as it lies under a roof of glass. It is now listed as a historical monument. There are a couple of very nice shops in it (including the Apple store and the great DOK cookware one), so you have a very elegant stroll in it, especially when the weather is not so nice. Click here for a panorama of the arcade.

It is a very nice spot in the shopping area, and very interesting to photograph at different times of the day.

That looks nice, the blue and grey are beautiful together.

You're both right, this is an ideal spot for photography, I just wish I had a wider lens for my camera!
