Leidseplein Travel Guide
  • Photo: andres balcazar / iStockphoto


The Leidseplein is one of the main tourist centers of Amsterdam and, like Rembrandtplein, is surrounded by neon-lighted eateries and bars, their terraces packed with visitors and shoppers set for the Leidsestraat. This is also the city's vortex for the performing arts, with street performers, music venues, theaters, and jazz bars. The Stadsschouwburg (Municipal Theater), with its Neo-Renaissance facade, is here, too . The Amsterdam American Hotel, at Leidsekade 97, is an Art Deco standout. (Keep an eye out for the statue of the woodcutter in the trees nearby.)
