The inside story

Welcome to the most famous square in Amsterdam. Bustling with life, Dam Square is definitely worth checking off the list when visiting the city.

Dam Square is popular among tourists and locals, whether for visiting a major point of interest or simply just soaking in the atmosphere and having a coffee in one of the cafés.

The Royal Palace of Amsterdam in the square is The Netherlands’ most prestigious building from the seventeenth century, as well as King Willem-Alexander’s official reception palace! Book a visit inside to see its beautiful interior and discover how the royals live.

In the Square, you can also find the National Monument to commemorate the Dutch soldiers during World War II. Stop here to reflect as the world goes by around you. You can also visit the Nieuwe Kerk (The New Church), the second oldest church in Amsterdam. This venue is often used for art exhibitions so keep your eyes peeled!

Also located in Dam Square is Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, where you can find wax models of many international celebrities and sports champions. From the inside, you can get great views of the Square too. The square is home to some razzle-dazzle with its Michelin starred restaurants, 5* hotels and high-end department stores such as De Bijenkorf (The Beehive) and The Magna Plaza, perfect for the shopaholics.

At Christmas time, the square comes to life with its traditional markets that sell local food and artisan gifts. Other nearby highlights are the red light district, the narrowest house in Amsterdam. Come and visit now!
