Spui is a small square on a major tram route and is nicely cobbled. Often nothing is here but you can sit down on benches & watch the world go by. On Sundays, there is a nice art market here with many original works.

We were staying close to Spui so decided to walk to the square and have a look at the art and crafts. Vendors were still unpacking their wares despite the fact we'd had a leisurely, late breakfast. What was there was interesting but just not...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
