DE DAM
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

At some point, every tourist passes by the Dam. The city’s history began here, and Amsterdam has this historic square to thank for part of its name. The square has several striking features: the National Monument, where visitors enjoy relaxing, and the Royal Palace, which was originally designed as the city hall and is now at the disposal of the royal family and their guests. Some of the magnificent rooms have been renovated and are now open to the public—they are well worth a visit.
