    De Bijenkorf Department Store

    De Bijenkorf is a wonderful department store, right at the Dam. It has lovely cafes and restaurants and beautiful housewares, clothing, and a huge book department.

    This square is known for all the pidgeons. The Dutch also use this square for large protests and public celebrations.

    Yellow Shoe

    You can't leave Dam Square without getting a picture in the yellow shoe. After a few Heinekens trying to drive the shoe is much better then driving your car.

    Is there anything more to say about the Dam Square? You might find a fair with rides or street actors in different seasons. Very crowded and simply Amsterdam :)

    The DAM square is also used for the Kermis (fair). So, if you are lucky you can get a ride on a merry-go-round, do some shooting or amuse yourself in one of the many attractions.

    Competing for space

    The best I can describe Dam Square is "Die gezoem van die bye" It is a madhouse of people milling about, trams, bicycles and pedestrians all competing for space.

    AMSTERDAM DE DAM

    Many street artists earn a little by performing on the Dam in front of the royal palace.
    Here's one guy pretending to be two little guys.

    The Dam square is the center of Amsterdam. Damrak street goes from the square to the north. Here you can see a 'human statue' and the palace in the background

    See the beautiful palace right in the center of the city.
    To the right of the palace there's a church with a strange looking clock. I should have taken a pic but was too busy feeling the chill.
