The nieuwmarkt is in the center of Amsterdam. You can find a lot of café's, restaurants and bars in this area. The neighbourhood is also close to 'De wallen', better known as the Red Light District.

Yes, it's a bit seedy and more than a bit touristy, but just look at this architecture! They're not making them like this anymore. There are plenty of bars and eateries here, and just walking around this area can be very invigorating. The Saturday market...More

There is nothing special about this place. You can just walk past it, if you are walking around the city. Our Dutch friends say it's far too expensive, so don't buy souvenirs there

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples

temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
