Having been open since 1991, it’s a time-honoured authority and known to every fantasist not only locally, but well beyond the Dutch borders. Visitors of all ages are in for quite an experience: the shop includes the magical ‘Chimera forest’, where dragons, trolls, unicorns, witches, fairies and other fantasy figures gather by the wishing well. But there’s more to Chimera than figurines: clothes are available, too, so fantasy fans can get decked out in a suitable outfit. Choose between dresses, skirts, coats, corsets and tops.

While Chimera’s central location makes a visit a great part of a day out in Amsterdam, they also have an online shop for checking out their fantastic offerings from one’s own home.
