At the historical center of the city, Dam Square, attend an event or tour nearby sites, such as the Royal Palace. The area's name comes from its original function as a dam on the Amstel River in 1270. In addition to the Royal Palace, built in Neoclassical style in the 17th century, the square is also home to the National Monument, Gothic New Church, and Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. Visit these sites, use the square as a meeting point for friends, or stop by during one of its many events. Use our Amsterdam road trip website to visit Dam Square on your trip to Amsterdam, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
