Named for a 17th-century historian and playwright, Amsterdam's Pieter Cornelisz Hooftstraat has since become the center of the city's designer shopping industry. Historically, the street has always had links to the upper class residents of Amsterdam-Zuid and the first buildings were designed by Pierre Cuypers, who is known for designing the Rijksmuseum and Amsterdam Central Station. Today, P.C. Hooftstraat is a very short stroll away from the Museumplein and Leidseplein, and draws the wealthy and fashionable to its selection of stores such as Burberry, Cartier, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Hugo Boss and Tiffany & Co.
