Wolke Wietje'Wolkewietje' is one of the smaller shops in Amsterdam, smack bang in the middle of the center. It has a nice ambiance and a cool salt water fish tank with all kinds of color full fish. Nice to trip-out on. The dealers area is the marble corner on the bar directly as you walk in. You will find a nice selection of both hash and weed from mild to killer including 'pre-rolled' joints and 'Phillies' Blunts. Remember to "push" the door going in, you stoners! It has two nice flower pots by the entrance. The shop looks like it was imported from some little Spanish village with lots of candles, some flowers and artistic work. Music differs from, lounge music some R&B reggae and some house music depending on who's working at the time.
