Well-known names in the coffeeshop world
Coffee shops in the Netherlands come in all shapes and sizes. Despite the fact that the concept is almost the same everywhere, namely a place where cannabis is sold and in most cases can be smoked, there are coffee shops in many forms. One has a classic and old-fashioned appearance, while the other exudes a hypermodern atmosphere. One is certainly not better than the other, and everyone has their own preference for a certain style and atmosphere. In this blog we discuss some of the most famous names in the world of coffee shops.

This is the oldest existing coffee shop in the Netherlands, and has been operating in the same building on Oudezijds Voorburgwal since 1974. Today, the coffee shop has expanded into an international brand with multiple shops, cafes and cannabis clubs in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rome, Ibiza and Aruba.
