“Fun area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We were in the area when the ice rink was out, the sun was shining, and everyone was having a good time. This is where you find the iconic 'I Amsterdam' sign and many museums. It's also not too far from the Heineken Brewery.

“An Action Packed Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

It is a square where all actions begin. The 3 major museums, the Rijkmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk museum are all located within 3 minutes walk. Besides the iconic red letters, 'I amsterdam', there are also a restaurant, museum gift shop and an ice rink. This is the place you want to hang around in Amsterdam.
