- Leidseplein(=square) is bustling with activity and terraces in summertime. Another nice square is Rembrandtplein, with an abundance of nice cafes and terraces. If you like spare ribs - visit De Klos just off the Leidsestraat. Beer is everywhere and it is all good. Amsterdam was originally built on the shores of the saltwater Zuiderzee, but as a result of centuries of land-reclamation projects Zuiderzee was renamed Ijsselmeer after it was separated from the sea by a dike and became a freshwater lake. Thus the city now borders the freshwater of IJsselmeer.
