Welcome to Dam Square, the most important square of the Dutch capital. Once a fish market where shops used to unload their goods, this picturesque square is nowadays a favorite gathering space for both tourists and locals alike.

It offers easy access to popular shopping streets like Kalverstraat and Nieuwendijk and is surrounded by numerous landmarks including the 15th-century Nieuwe Kerk, the National Monument, and the Royal Palace.

Whether you wish to see street performers, have a refreshing drink on one of the cute café terraces, or maybe pay a visit to the Madame Tussauds wax museum, a visit to Dam Square promises to be a fun experience.
