This square is not so crowded and frenetic like the city center. Pubs and cafe's crowd the edges of the square. Plenty of choice there, also in the side streets like Binnen Bantammerstraat some nice places to be found. There's the Bredero monument on one...More

Lots of big name brand stores (we saw 4 Samsonite stores in a few blocks) and tourists. No soul. No reason to visit.

My wife and I were the Dam for her birthday and King's Day and on the Saturday took a wonder from the Canal district to Red Light District and came across a fantastic open air music and fair ground. It was a great atmosphere.

Nieuwmarkt is off the Red Light District and the Chinatown area. The De Waag building is the most prominent in this square.

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
