The Leidseplein Square is located in the southern belt of Amsterdam’s Canals, about a 15-minute walk from Rembrandtplein and Dam Square, and besides being a strategic node of the tram transport system, it is a mix of historical architecture, modern buildings and tourist venues.

Designed in the 17th century on the site of the main gateway to the city, today Leidseplein is, together with Rembrandt Square, the centre of Amsterdam’s entertainment and nightlife and is home to an endless array of pubs, restaurants, cafés and street performers.

Along the neighbouring Kerkstraat are some trendy gay clubs, while Leidsestraat is ideal for shopping.

Elandsgracht, where the characteristic Jordaan district begins, is about a 10-minute walk away.
