Dam Square

Amsterdam Business Travel Guide - - LANDMARK ATTRACTIONS -

Just a five-minute walk down the Dam­rak from Cen­traal Sta­tion takes you into this jam-packed square, jostling with lo­cals and tourists day and night; along with sea­sonal car­ni­vals and other mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment.

With­out doubt, of all the at­trac­tions in Dam Square, Royal Palace (Konin­klijk Palace) is quite lit­er­ally the jewel in the crown. Other must-sees in Dam Square are Madame Tus­sauds, the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk) of­ten used for im­por­tant art ex­hi­bi­tions and Beurs van Ber­lage, an old Stock Ex­change build­ing now used as a con­cert hall and an ex­hi­bi­tion space.

“What­ever the weather, there is al­ways some­thing go­ing on here so ex­pect lots of en­ter­tain­ment.”
