Nieumarkt, not a bad walk from Centraal Station, is a fun neighborhood in Amsterdam. There are other neighborhoods we liked better (less crowded, more charm), but Nieumarkt is worth a visit. I liked it better during the day than at night -- at night, it was VERY busy with various revelers, etc., and had less of a casual, easygoing vibe.... More

Not a touristy as Rembrandt Square or Leidseplein. Good place for a beer out on the terrace and watch people stroll by.

The Nieuwmarkt is located close to the Red Light District. There are several terraces, so you can choose to sit in the sun or in the shade. People watching! Every Saturday there is an organic market. Try the high quality mushrooms.

On many days there is a market at the New Market and one can find food, fruits, and flowers. It is also by Chinatown, so it is always busy. The building there is St. Anthony's Gate, which was one of the old city gates. The square also has a good supermarket there. There are plenty of restaurants that ring the... More

Diffrent from the famous canals. In the middle of the old part of Amsterdam, in front of the Waag (and old city gate which houses a goodlooking but not so very good cafe/restaurant)). Walking distance from the University of Amsterdam (Oudemanhuis poort and WG), next to , China Town and the Rembrandtplein area. The red light district is around the... More
