“Just another square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Not much more to add - bit like Covent Garden with the street entertainers and pigeons. The buildings are quite stately and intriguing to look at but if you don't get there, don't worry

“Nice square and park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Loved it. GThere is the IAmsterdam sign which is perfect for your mandatory touristy photo and then the park and plaza with small food vendors and museums surrounding it. Definitely something to walk by while here.

“Oranjeplein!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

I went to watch Netherlands Vs Chile in the World Cup group stage here, when the square had been turned into 'Oranjeplein' - I recommend anybody and everybody, dutch, sports fan or other to attend a match here. 3 fantastic big screens and an awesome atmosphere. Just make sure to wear orange!

“Beautiful place to chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This spot is just beautiful, you have a big park where you can sit and chill at,
It is right next to the Rijksmuseum, and the the iamsterdam sign.
I recommend coming there to chill for a couple of hours between sight seeing, having some good coffee at one of the coffee houses near, and enjoying the peacefulness of Amsterdam.

“A great collection of museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The three museums here are all great. In this open area visitors can relax and there's a great museum shop.
