Reviews of Dam Square • 3
Walk or ride around the city and head to Dam Square. It's located in the historical centre of Amsterdam and buzzing with activity. Spend the morning visiting the Royal Palace, the New Church and the National Monument. If you feel hungry, just stop by one of many cafes to indulge in a quick bite. One of the best activities is to observe people and that's best done right in the heart of the city!
If you want to enjoy the city's vibe, Dam Square is the place to be. It has a lot of food joints and street performers.I captured a glimpse of one of the most beautiful days during our trip in Amsterdam . Watch the video below
If you hang around Dam Square, Leidseplein or Rembrandtplein long enough, you’re bound to come across talented musicians, jugglers, mimes, break dancers and comedians who come from around the globe to perform in public squares for free. Many are aspiring stars and this is their livelihood, so be sure to throw a few euros their way if they’ve inspired a belly laugh.
