A great open space. hub of museums, street performers, out-door music, people watching, small shops and food vendors. A pleasant distraction between visiting the historical museums

Nice square: it is between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum; a green area spreads across the two, and the typical "Amsterdam" signboard for tourists' pictures is there.

It was so crowded when we got there. There were street dancers that was in front of the sign. It was very annoying. Getting a good picture by the sign is impossible. You just have to work on what you have. Overall experience in Amsterdam is great though.

Yes it is SUPER crowded, and you have to watch for bikes from the toddlers who can't hardly walk to the senior citizen everyone rides. Everyone is helpful. All the museums are within walking distance. Will return.

It's a big square surrounded by museums, Stedelijk museum, Rijk museum and Van Gogh museum. There is always activities on it, like concerts, something with soccer or people hanging around. It's a place to be for every tourist because of the big letter "I amsterdam". Everyone wants to have a picture with it. If you want to have picture with this letter alone, make sure that you come early in the morning or.... look at the internet where the other "I amsterdam" letter will be placed at the moment. Go there and you can take picture as many as you want without other people next to you.
