The area
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

We spotted the gay information booth which sold a variety of souvenirs. The man was extremely helpful explaining what the monument was about. The monument is in 3 parts. It is a memorial to the holocaust victims who were gay and lesbian.

I was upset that there were men’s urinals that there city had placed right next to part of the monument which was very disrespectful for what it represents. It’s also unnecessary as my partner and I both commented on how we never saw any in the rest of the city.

It’s a worthwhile visit. If you are going to buy rainbow souvenirs, buy from the booth. I suspect it at least goes to the local LGBT community and businesses.

Worth a visit if you're passing, it is located by the Anne Frank house, but easy to miss if you're not sure what you're looking for.

It is a good spot to take a moment to thank those who have come before and fought for our freedom.

Another writer comments on the outdated symbolism. However, like the nearby Anne Frank House, this monument serves as a stark reminder of the prejudices of a so-called civilised world, that led to the persecution of people, simply because of who they were. Like most things in this beautiful city, it is pitched just right. Not a showy statement, rather a discrete and respectful tribute. The modern rainbow emblem serves as a colourful allusion to a more tolerant world, but this place of sober reflection commemorates, to great effect, both past and present horrors; for it should be remembered that there are still many places in the world were such a level of understanding remains a distant dream...

This is a very simple monument, but so worth visiting. It's right around the corner from Anne Frank House. I wish every city around the world had a monument such as this one. Also, check out the little Pride booth/shop right next to it - very cute.

This monument stands in tribute to all the gay men and lesbians who have been subjected to persecution.

The monument is simple and is a set of steps leading to a triangular jetty on the canal. While I applaud the sentiments, the monument is a bit underwhelming and I'd have missed it were it not for it's proximity to the Statue to Anne Frank.

Honouring LGBT victims lost in the war. Visit the near by information centre for a leaflet on the history of the monument.

Stopped here while in Amsterdam recently.The Homomonument is a memorial in the centre of Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. It commemorates all gay men and lesbians who have been subjected to persecution because of their homosexuality. It is easy to get to and filled with beautiful scenery and numerous markets and restaurants nearby.

I take issue with the comment of a recent reviewer who said that the Homomonument smells like pee. This is entirely untrue. What smells like pee is the "pissoir", a men's urinal which is nearby, unfortunately. No one should associate the smell of pee with homosexuality, a claim which has no factual basis.

Deceptively larger than expected. Judging from the reviews on here I thought it was only one triangle, but after speaking to the guy running the Pink Point (the tiny shop situated just across from the monument on the square), it’s actually 3 triangles rather than just 1. The one that everyone spots is the one that juts out into the water, which represents the present and faces the National War Memorial. The second one’s sticking up above the footpath not far away and represents the future, and is pointed at the COC building. The last one, which I didn’t initially spot, is built into the cobblestones, representing the past and pointing at the Anne Frank House.
