  • The National Monument is located very close to the Paleis. Two heraldic stone lions that represent the Netherlands are on the imposing memorial to the Dutch who lost their lives in World War II 
  • This isn't the most beautiful monument of Amsterdam but the place is worth visiting is the central square (which involves a ton of world). The main interest of this monument is that it represents the starting point of the Free tour amsterdam.

  • More important than beautiful, this monument would need for first a good cleaning. To be visit only because in the super central Dam Square, but Amsterdam has better things to offer.

  • 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.
