In all my visits to the Dam I had never seen the statues but I have to say I it was well worth getting of the tram to see . I've posted some pics so see what you think . One of the reasons to get a check card for the transport system is you can jump off the tram... More

It would be nice to have the nightwatchman sculpture in english as to origin and where the painting is stored as to many people it is a mystery. But loads of nightlife and friendly people

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
