“The famous I AMSTERDAM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I was so happy when I spotted this sign! This is a very busy area but its funny watching all the people climbing on the sign trying to get a good picture. There are also food stalls around and of course its 1 min away from the Rijks Museum and Van Gough. SO its a great spot to relax in between museum visits.

“great open space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

A great open space. hub of museums, street performers, out-door music, people watching, small shops and food vendors. A pleasant distraction between visiting the historical museums

“Worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Nice square: it is between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum; a green area spreads across the two, and the typical "Amsterdam" signboard for tourists' pictures is there.

“Crowded :<”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

It was so crowded when we got there. There were street dancers that was in front of the sign. It was very annoying. Getting a good picture by the sign is impossible. You just have to work on what you have. Overall experience in Amsterdam is great though.

“Great town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Yes it is SUPER crowded, and you have to watch for bikes from the toddlers who can't hardly walk to the senior citizen everyone rides. Everyone is helpful. All the museums are within walking distance. Will return.
