"National Phallus?" National Monument Tip by CoAir13

National Monument, Amsterdam: 36 reviews and 55 photos


This National Monument sits across from the Royal Palace and resembles a large phallus. I mean no disrespect, but I found it humorous being that it is in such an "open" society.......but, I digress.
It was unveiled by Queen Juliana of Orange on May 4, 1956 and is adorned with intricate sculptures and Dutch carvings!

Address: Dam Square

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
