Now this is an exclusive department store that sells perfumes, clothes furniture etc. It strides to sell a choice of merchandise others do not. Metz&Co traces its roots back to 1740 and the domed feature on the roof of the building was built in 1930. Now apart from a little window shopping for most of us the store is also worth a visit to go up to the 6th floor to the M/Café for the fantastic views across Amsterdam. From the outside you do not get an impression of height but once at the top the large windows on each side of the cafe provide views well worth the €3 for the cup of tea.
