  • It's called square Leidseplein and the Max Euwe Centrum is a building in commemoration and memory to the chess player Max Euwe. It has a Museum, library and other chess-related activities such as lectures, seminars etc. Next there is the famous giant chess, it is worth taking a picture because it's still a tourist attraction. The square is also located the Hard Rock Cafe.

  • Nice place to learn a bit about chess history. It is not in English, but one of the workers gave us an awesome little tour. The 'museum' is very small, but there's a study center where you can play for as long as you want. And free coffee ;)
  • It was a nice experience, the staff helpful, but I feel like there is much lost with the whole museum being in Dutch, as opposed to having translations in place, along with the Dutch versions.
  • Awesome place for chess lovers! I haven't found anything similar in other major cities! Good level of the players along with some grand masters! Open from morning till 21:00. Also a nice place to chill out since there are no cars
  • If you are again of chess then a visit here is a must, always a game being played. Close to a number of bars and restaurants too
  • Great place to play with a giant chess set.
