  • Nice surroundings. Great place to take some pictures and appreciate the colonial architecture. A lot of areas to sit and gain new perspective on the square including near the fountain and surrounding areas. Food and merchandise stalls are available adjacent to the square. I had hoped for more historical information as both the Church and the buildings are not accessible to visitors during the time of visit. Definitely the highlight of Melaka and a Must-Visit.
  • The Dutch Square of Melaka is located in Bandar Hilir and is the most famous landmark. The square is surrounded by buildings painted in red, which gives rise to its popular name Red Square. One of the most picturesque points of Malacca, the most prominent building of Dutch Square is Stadthuys. Built between the 1660s and 1700s, the red buildings are characterized by large windows and wrought iron hedges. The entire area of Dutch Square has a vibrant surrounding and can always be seen buzzing with tourists. A major highlight of the Red Square is the Queen Victoria Fountain, standing proudly at its centre. The century-old fountain was built in 1901 to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. The red buildings and surrounding make the Dutch square a popular place for clicking photographs. It is also popular for souvenir shopping.
  • The historical square of Malacca, containing all the remnants of the colonial days. It is very well kept by the State government. Stadhuys, Christ Church, Victoria Water Fountain, the Clock Tower, Bastion Middleburgh are all located here, within walking distance. It is very happening especially at night and on the weekend. Jonker street is just across the bridge over the Melaka river.
  • Beautiful place to visit, everything is historic, we booked the hotel nearby this dutch square, easy to walk jonker street food. But only thing need attention about the travel bicyle, they treated us to visit 3 places but only 1. They told it was closed.
  • 🟥 is a very beautiful place. It’s smaller than what I thought it would be, but definitely worth visiting. Very close to St. Paul Cathedral
