    Strange birds on the Dam square

    by Pavlik_NL Written Dec 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pigeons on the Dam square are loved and hated at the same time. The birds are simply rude from all the food they get and the fact that they are in masses and you stand alone. There are various birdfood salesmen roaming around the sqaure, making the situation only worse. The animals (rats among birds) are a plague to the cities monuments and statues, so please, think twice before feeding them even fatter then they already are. Also, watch out when they massively fly around.
    Furthermore, the Dam-square also attracts other strange birds, but they only decorate the square with their art. I'm talking about musicians, living statues and other artistic people, making a living.

    A part of the palace is still in use as a residence. But visitors can take a look in the Royal kitchen. Let you guide trough the magnificent corridors, chambers and halls and feel like a princess / prince for just a second ...
