Great place to take some pictures. It is at the end of museumplein and very close to van gogh museum and the national museum. During weekends there the space next to the sign is a market (or at least it was when we were there).
Tip 1: Get there early so there is less crowded. in the weekends before 8-9 and during workdays 9-10.
Tip 2: To get there yo can take 2 or 5 from he central station and get off at "rijksmuseum". Or if you are coming from the eat of the city number 1 to Hoygedstraat and switch to 3 or 12 going south for 1 stop(get off next to bagels and beans, which is a great place for lunch by the way).More
