De Dam

Look at De Dam around you and you will see the Palace on Dam Square, Bijenkorf, the Nieuwe Kerk and the National Monument, living statues and many pigeons.

In the historic heart of Amsterdam you will find De Dam. The place where the annual National Remembrance of Death is held. Around the busy square you will find many well-known buildings such as the Palace on Dam Square and the Nieuwe Kerk as well as the Bijenkorf, Madame Tussauds and Hotel Krasnapolsky. The name Dam comes from the original function of the square: it was a dam in the Amstel River, which was built between 1265 and 1275. The dam gradually became wider and large enough for a square that became the core of the city. The city then developed around De Dam.
