Dam Square is the grandest square in Amsterdam. I stumbled on the square purely by accident (well, many of my discoveries have been found by accident, and sometimes it's a nice way to discover places).

There is some impressive architecture about. It also includes Madame Tussaud's wax museum, the New Church, the National Monument and the Royal Palace. There are many places to shop just off the square.

Address: Dam -
Directions: From Station Amsterdam Centraal, take the road Demrak until the end. From the south, take Rokin. From the east, take Damstraat. From the west, take Westermarkt and/or Raadhuisstraat.
