Welcome JD. (I hope that doesn't stand for Jim Donnan)

Congrats on the trip, I make it to Amsterdam about every two years, I just spent a week there in October. Amsterdam is my second favorite city in Europe, the first in some regards.

The city is littered with good shops. The language is so freaky that I don't bother with the names of the shops or the streets.

This is about all you need to get started:

If you are looking for any other smoke I recommend Tweedy's out by the Vondelpark, limited to evening hours but quiet and cool (if that's what you like). :w

You realize that Amsterdam has a section where everything is legal and you can buy some interesting smokes.

Anyway:

It's been awhile since I've been there, but this shop was in my database.

This is one great place and is like quite old so I'm sure it's still there. Anyone can tell you where it is but heres the address:


HAJENIUS
Rokin 92 - 96, 1012 KZ Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of my favorite places, great beer and fun people. Have a good time. :al :al

Well I ended up at P.G.C. HAJENIUS. This place we great :D , very courteous, good but not extensive selection. Didn’t have any ERDM. Just the big names. I picked up a Cohiba Robusto (15 Euros). The smoke was strong but not overpowering, excellent draw, great flavors and construction. The staff offered me a seat in the back and supplied a complementary cup of coffee and CA magazines. I’m heading back tomorrow and was thinking or trying a Cuaba or a Trinidad. Never had either one of these.

Has anyone been to any Amsterdam Cigar Shops recently? I've got the article printed from the link in earlier in the thread, but I'm trying to get a recent pulse with cigars in Amsterdam. Any chance of finding some old stinky cigars?

I'm leaving Saturday.


I'll also be in Kaprun Austria for a bit of time, so if anyone has ideas on smoke shops around there, that would be helpful.


Thanks,
Ji

Ji - when i was in Europe last year (for the World Cup), I visited Amsterdam and the cigar shop mentioned above - P.G.C. HAJENIUS - was very nice and has a comfortable smoking lounge, too. I recommend you give them a try.
