Dam Square is called “De Dam” in Dutch. It’s the main square in the center of Amsterdam and it’s located 750 meters away from Central Station – which was designed by Pierre Cuypers who designed the Rijksmuseum. Dam Square is the historic heart of Holland’s capital and the location of many events of national significance. One of the most important national events held on Dam Square is Remembrance Day.

“De Dam” derives its name from its original function: a dam on Amsterdam’s Amstel river. This is how Amsterdam got its name. Built in approximately 1270, the dam formed the first connection between the settlements on the sides of the river.
