Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum, Amsterdam

Extract from Supertime Amsterdam.

Open 364 days a year (King’s Day, 27 April, is the exception), this is simply the Netherlands’ best newsstand. Fittingly located around the corner from what was once Amsterdam’s own Fleet Street, it offers newspapers in every conceivable language, as well as international periodicals from the most outré fanzine to the latest fashion glossy. It also stocks a fine line in music, design and travel books, and runs a blog in English on its latest arrivals.
