Dam Square, Amsterdam

Planning to visit Dam Square? Check out our information below!


Amsterdam’s Dam Square is the historic heart of the city and the location of many events of national significance. Compared to the past, it is now a peaceful square where you can find many street performers and pigeons.

On and near Dam Square are the Royal Palace, the New Church and the National Monument. The National Monument is a monument commemorating the victims of World War II. Every year, the National Remembrance Day is held here on 4 May, attended by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima, among others.

The dam is easy to reach and not the central point of Amsterdam for nothing. You walk from Central Station via Damrak to the square. From Dam Square, you can easily walk into Kalverstraat, Amsterdam’s busiest and most important shopping street.
