From the Prinsengracht towards the Singel and beginning with the northernmost streets, the streets are:
- Reestraat (English: Roe Deer Street) – Hartenstraat (English: Hearts Street) – Gasthuismolensteeg (English: Inn Mill Alley)
- Berenstraat (English: Bear Street) – Wolvenstraat (English: Wolf Street) – Oude Spiegelstraat (English: Old Mirror Street)
- Runstraat (English: Cow Street) – Huidenstraat (English: Skins or Pelts Street) – Wijde Heisteeg (English: Wide Heath Street)
The names are reminders of many of the types of work that were carried out here in centuries past, especially the processing of skins (cow, bear, wolf and roe deer skins).
