The Nieuwe Leliestraat is a cosy street surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, stores and markets. The area is in the center of Amsterdam, a UNESCO protected area with many canals and picturesque buildings. It is famous for its small and authentic shops, lovely restaurants, the inner courts called ‘hofjes’ and of course the Anne Frank House.
