"Dam" Dam Square Tip by Helga67
Dam Square, Amsterdam: 93 reviews and 174 photos
At the end of the 13th century the first people (fishermen) settled here along the river Amstel and built a dyke (=dam). This is where the name Amsterdam is derived from.
So this square is the real heart and oldest part of Amsterdam.
Today, this is a very lively square with lots of tourists, shoppers and street animators. During the night, you will find drugs users here looking for some drugs and money.
Address: Dam, Amsterdam
Directions: From the Central Station straight ahead, at the end of the Damrak.
