“Touristy stroll from Dam Square”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

This street leads out of Dam Square back up toward Centraal Station and is packed with tourists and shops, cafes, and other establishments catering to them. Our family left Madame Tussauds headed up this street and encountered the masses of people just walking around this area. It is busy and can be a little crowded with some younger children so be alert with all the traffic and things going on. It is a lively place to be and should be visited when in Amsterdam to say you have been there. A little too touristy for us, but it presents an awesome picture opportunity of Centraal Station as you approach.

“Bakkerij de Waal is a saving grace!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

Walking around this area on a rainy and cold Sunday morning with jet lag was a rude awakening to Europe. The sidewalks were covered in Saturday night's litter and we had to be careful of broken glass. There is a bakery several blocks down from the station on the right hand side of the street--Bakkerij de Wall--which serves excellent pastries and significantly brightened our morning. We had an enjoyable cruise with nearby Rederij Plas which was an excellent value.

“Cheap entrance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

A pity of Amsterdam is the on average cheap entrance of the city. You can eat there for low prices, but it also gives a poor looking site of a street which once had more grandeur. After the Damrak it totally changes. The boat trips are however great. I hope the buildings will be restored in the near future. Only this will change the view.
