As we stayed near Centraal Station, we would frequently walk down the Damrak to head up the city. However it is a rather touristy place. On one side you have the canal where you have people handing out flyers for various boat cruises. The other...More

This is one of the most happening place in Amsterdam naturally since this is the street that you will immediately see when you exit the Central Station. Lots of businesses catering to tourists e.g. restaurants, souvenir shops, money changer, convenience stores, etc. along the street....More

As you exit Centraal Train Station in Amsterdam there's a good chance that you will probably walk down Damrak. Damrak is an avenue and partially filled in canal that is one of Amsterdams most famous streets and runs from Centraal Train Station to Dam Square....More

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of

best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
