  • Beautiful square, a little out of the Centre of Dam Square. It looks like a square in Paris on certain occasions, and squares of Paris are wonderful. Many pubs and bars and restaurants, is a great place to go to eat or drink or just a ride

  • One of the areas with the best atmosphere in the city. It is surrounded by all kinds of restaurants, open most any time. If you are in one of the many terraces in the square, you'll pass to all kinds of people and street performances. It has lots of lighting and overlooking one of the streets with more shops in the city.

  • Small supermarket near Leidseplein. Okay to drink a couple of bottles or cans to get, since there are few supermarkets in the immediate vicinity. Though pieces more expensive than a regular supermarket in A'dam if the AH.
