“Interesting Market Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The open market place was bustling with people when i reached in mid day. The vendors were all hustling and eagerly talking to locals and tourists about their goods and they seems happy to speak to anyone as long you are near their stalls. The Dutch people are some of the friendliest people I've met in Europe and they definitely make you feel welcome.

“Great Hangout Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Very lively centre for locals to gather. Usually have open markets there, lots of great spots to have coffee or beer and just watch everything going on.
We were there for Aprilfeest and saw/experienced the rides and for/beer tents with live music.

“Go on Saturday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The New Market square houses a small farmers market every Saturday ("Boerenmarkt") with organic food, delicious cheeses, herrings in a bun, fruit juices and more. Try timing a visit there on Saturday to enjoy it.

“A few bars and some history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Place close to the center of Amsterdam. A nice place to take a rest during a day's sightseeing. A few bars to take a beer of coffee. Next to the chinese quarter and the red-light district.

“Nice area to hangout and have a coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Nieuwmarkt area is nice square to hangout with friends and family as there a lot of street cafes and restaurants where you can can just lay back and chill. People do find it noisy and crowded, but personally, I find it lively most of the time. Another of my evening haunts.
