Dam Square, Amsterdam

Dam Square is an important plaza and major tourist hub in the heart of Amsterdam, located on the site of the original 13th century Amstel dam.

Dam Square is an important plaza and major tourist hub in the heart of Amsterdam, located on the site of the original 13th century Amstel dam. The city developed around it, with several historical buildings surrounding it.

The square is bordered on the west by the Royal Palace, which served as the city hall from 1655 to 1808, and then as a royal residence. Next to it is the 15th century Gothic Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which is used for Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and exhibitions. The south side of the square has the Peek & Cloppenburg building with the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. You can also find the Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club and Gassan jewelry store here. The east side of the square has the National Monument, a 22-metre tall white stone obelisk erected in 1956 to commemorate the victims of World War II. It is bordered by the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky. To the north of the square is the upscale department store De Bijenkorf, along with various luxury retail outlets.

The Damrak avenue which leads northwards from the Dam Square to Amsterdam Centraal is lined with various attractions such as BODY WORLDS – Amsterdam, Sherlocked - Mystery Experiences, and Beurs van Berlage, the old Stock Exchange building which is now used for concerts and exhibitions.
