The most impressive building in Dam Square is the Royal Palace, but don’t expect to see the Queen; she lives in The Hague
Located in the heart of Amsterdam, from here you are waking distance to many of the city's attractions. You can grab a bite to eat at one of the many fast food joints around, and watch the various street performers put on a show. Otherwise, you can sit on the large white phallic World Ward II monument and people watch in this busy square; stay long enough and you're sure to see something bizarre. In the square you can find a few reasonably priced souvenir shops, as well as the official Amsterdam tourist bureau.
