Gerard Douplein and Gerard Doustraat are an interconnected square and street, a literal stone’s throw from other de Pijp hotspots we’ve blogged such as Eerste Sweelinckstraat, Eerste van der Helststraat and Albert Cuypmarkt and the various food, drink and shopping venues on them we already know and love.
These hotspots are joined by über people-watching area Gerard Douplein and the boutique-browsing pleasure that’s to be found on Gerard Doustraat. We mesh these together because the area is so compact that we’d do you an injustice to over-emphasise them, but they’re worth a combined mention for the treat they are. Go browsing for nothing-in-particular then head for coffee and cake or a glass of something grown-up at one of the Gerard Douplein cafes and watch the world go by in a pretty and intimate space. You’re unlikely to see such a diverse range of people anywhere else in the city.
