The City Centre
Medieval streets, ancient cafés and the trendiest of shops. The city was built around the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam's oldest building dating from 1300. In this part of Amsterdam every stone tells a story!
The Dam was built around 1270 between two dikes in order to prevent flooding. Now it is the central square between the Rokin and Damrak. The Palace on Dam Square, the Nieuwe Kerk, The War Memorial and Madam Tussaud's are its main attractions.
This more than 300 year old area was given the name Jardin (garden) during the French occupation because all the streets are named after flowers, plants and trees. On Mondays and Saturdays you can visit several markets and there are restaurants, courtyards, shops and galleries is to explore.
The Nieuwmarkt is on the edge of the Red Light District and is dominated by the 15th century Waag (weighing house). The square is surrounded by 17th and 18th century facades and has many nice cafés and restaurants. In the summer the square is transformed into a big outdoor café where you can watch colourful Amsterdam pass by.
