National Monument Reviews & Ratings
It's one of the best focal points to start any tour. I did it as a teenager, with my new wife and now as a father of 3 and every time, I start here to any tour. The hotel is right next door and the shopping street connects you from the new to the old part of the town.
Stayed here for a good 20 minutes while waiting for a friend and I was able to record via time lapse how fast the weather in Amsterdam changes. It's in the center of the business district and a great place for meeting friends.
The monument is very impressive and sits on the opposite side of the road from Dam square (which is one of the most cosmopolitan squares in Europe). It is situated at the end of Warmoesstraat which is one of the entrances to the red light district. Generally the monument is covered in tourists who are meeting up or eating and that is because it is such a perfect central meeting point. The free tours of Amsterdam mostly set off from here so it is also perfect for taking those.
It's in Dam square and is one of the most visited place of Amsterdam for sure. All main attractions are walking distance from here
