Leidseplein

This historic square now offers plenty of opportunities for relaxation and entertainment. It is a pleasant meeting place for Amsterdammers and tourists. Here you will find many cozy terraces, theaters and restaurants. The square dates back to 1660 and was built as a ‘car square’, where visitors from outside the city could park their cars before going further into the city. After more than a century it also acquired a cultural function, when in 1774 the first theater was built on the square.
