“Always something going on”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Dam Square is near De Oude Kirk and there always seems to be something going on - entertainment wise - great outdoor space to meet up.

“The central square of town”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a big gathering spot in front of the palace and where we changed streetcars. The transportation is quite good as we were not staying in the city core

“Busy Square”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a square you'll walk/drive through a few times when in Amsterdam. The central station 10 minutes away. The square itself is busy and lined with grand buildings. There are always alot of people out and about. There are plenty of places to eat/drink and shop around. But other than that there isnt much else to do there. As I said it is quite crowded. There is a nice Christmas tree put up during the Christmas period. Its not a destination to go to however more a place to pass through
