“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

When going to the Netherlands, the Dam Square is a must-see, its beyond beautiful. You could literally spend your whole day here. it's great for enjoying a walk or sight-seeing, or you could shop and dine. It's also located close to the castle and museums, including the famous Madame Tussaud's. Also there was plenty of entertainment there, such as the street acts. I would definitely go back again.

“The heart of amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Located near to the amsterdam central station, dam square is full of restaurants, shopping centres, tourists and adventurous activities. The nightlife is famous for enjoyment. Tourists throng this part of amsterdam city which contains Madam Tusaud wax Museum. In the evening, it is an ultimate place for enjoying.

“Enjoyed My Day Out at Dam Square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Dam Square is a central square in Amsterdam next to one of the castles and not too far from Centraal Station - train/metro station. It is a good area for shopping as there are a number of stores around and restuarants. Definately and interesting place to visit in Amsterdam. But be warned the area is full of tourists especially in summer.
