  • The National Monument is located on the Dam and you can not miss, opposite the Palace. A must-see when visiting Amsterdam and also because it is always very busy. On 4 may, there will always be a commemoration ceremony held in honor of the victims of the second world war.

  • Very busy area. Meeting point for a lot of tours/walks. Lots to see and do. Good place for taking photos. Plenty of places to stop for a quick drink or to sit and watch the world go by. 
  • This statue is an important one in the Netherlands. We always pass by when we are in the city centre.

  • NIce monument in a big wide open space. Not somewhere to linger for long if you are worried about snipers.
  • Good place to meet for the free tours and also gather to socialize with your friends. Very central to the city easy to spot since it's by the Ferris wheel and all the rides.
  • Nice place. Look for the guys with the orange umbrella's. They are free Tour Guides!
  • One of the most and biggest meeting place. Lots and lots of bikes. The statue itself doesn't speak nothing to me but it has a symbolic value.
  • A good place to have a break during your trip in amsterdam. This square has a special ancient but yet modern feeling.
