leidseplein  



 
 
Leidsestraat (Leiden Street), historically the main road to Leiden, culminates in Leidseplein (Leiden Square), one of the most vibrant entertainment districts in Amsterdam. Cafes, bars, clubs and restaurants line the perimeter of the square, and street performers busily try to reel in an audience from the crowds of people en route to their dinners and shows. Some of the top music venues in town are found near Leidseplein, like Paradiso (Weteringschans 6), whose concert calendar features many internationally acclaimed artists, and venues for all tastes can be found on and around the square. Leidseplein's seasonal side is one of its most famous perks - from a skate rink in winter to a carpet of cafe terraces in the warmer months, the square rolls with the seasons.

A place to see and be seen, to start the party and find out where it's happening and sidewalk cafe's make it easy to know where and when.
