Dam Square

4,145 Reviews

Dam Square is the main city square in Amsterdam and is one of the most well-known locations in all of the Netherlands. Located in the historical center of the city and just 750 meters south of Amsterdam Centraal Station, Dam Square is home to an array of notable buildings and frequently hosts events of national importance.

The square sits over the original location of the dam in the Amstel River and has been surrounded by land on all sides since the mouth of the river was filled in the 19th century. On the west end of the square you will see the Royal Palace, which was the city hall from 1655 until its conversion to a royal residence in 1808. Next to the palace are the Gothic Nieuwe Kirk (New Church) and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. On the east end of the square is the National Monument, a stone pillar erected in 1956 to memorialize the Dutch victims of World War II.

Dam Square is also home to the Amsterdam Diamond center, the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky and thupscale department store De Bijenkorf, which has stood on the square since 1914. Behind the De Bijenkorf building is the Beurs van Berlage, the old Stock Exchange building that is now used as a concert hall and exhibition space.

Private Tour: Secret Beer Tour Amsterdam

Private Tour: Secret Beer Tour Amsterdam

Amsterdam has been a beer-loving city since the 12th century. Back then, drinking beer was as normal as drinking water. In fact, the water was so polluted that everyone drank beer — even the children. The Dutch traveled far and wide, bringing wheat and rye from Germany, where they learned how to brew beer. After a long investigation revealed a scandal amongst the big breweries of Amsterdam, small breweries started to pop up, growing and expanding within the city. In turn, this led to the growth of Amsterdam's craft beer culture, where more and more people were interested in local beers made by local people. When you join our Amsterdam: Secret Beer Tour, you'll visit and get to know two of these small breweries. As a private tour, everything works around you! Our start times are much more easy going, dates can open up. It's a much more intimate and cozy experience. No need to shout over other tourists, you will have every question answered, and leave feeling like a native yourself!
