Christmas and public holiday opening hours

Some shops have limited opening times on public holidays but many of the shops (especially outside the centre) will be closed for the day. Have a look at the Dutch public holiday calendar when planning your next shopping trip. The festive season in Amsterdam also results in revised opening hours, including additional days for late opening.
