    You can see so many people here on weekends. It has completely different energy here. This is one place no one should miss an evening round in Amsterdam.

    The Leidseplein square forms the heart of the Amsterdam party district and a point of entrance to the old town and canal district. The city theater is here as well as a Mac flagship store. One can find dozens of pubs and eateries around here, as well as pubs, clubs and novelty shops. Walk down the Leidsestraat to end up on the Kalverstraat shopping street and flower market. Nice stop when exploring Amsterdam for the first time.

    A lovely little square in the center of the old town with interesting shops around it. Many people use it as a meeting point as it is so easy to fine. One of my favourite spots to just sit and watch the local culture.

    Besides being the address of Europe's largest Apple Store and the legendary Hotel American it is a traffic nerve centre for trains and buses. It is also the city's party centrum. You find a huge selection of bars, clubs and restaurants both on and near by Leiseplein.

    There are so many things to do here. This is one of the most famous places in Amsterdam, especially for tourists, and there are bars and concerts galore packed into one spot not far from Museumplein. That may not be your cup of tea, but it certainly is for enough people for this place to be packed almost nonstop! From Leideseplein, you can branch off to a ton of other well-known attractions in Amsterdam that tend to be fairly close to here. Great spot to siphon energy from the loud and busy crowds, especially during holidays, when the area can get turned into a skating rink!

    If you are looking for some night life away from the red light district this is the place. Leiden Square has many bars and even more restaurants. All the restaurant are competing for your business and if you just show a little hesitance they will offer a free drink or something. Just keep that in mind. And there are coffee shops in this area ;)

    Leidsplein is very close to the Marriott, so it was an easy place for us to go to get a wide selection of food. It is busy, but all of Amsterdam is busy in July!

    It is one of the most popular tourist spot in Amsterdam. A lot of trams and buses stop here. The surrounding places are full of bars, cafes and restaurants. A nice place for people watch but I liked Rembrandtplein square better.

    This is a big cross roads for the trams, cars - and watch out for the bikes - so go careful crossing the square! Lots of cafes, restaurants and bars here - great for people-watching. Also check out some of the side streets for slightly cheaper prices.

    Many trams bring lots of people, mostly tourists to this overrated place. Maybe have a look around (some noisy construction work going on) and have an overpriced drink/snack in an overcrowded place with unfriendly servers :( Not worth to make a detour.

    Fun, extremely busy square with lots of restaurants, "coffee shops" and bars. Great for people watching with a Heineken. Watch your belongings around the ATMs. Lots of loitering, questionable folks hanging around. Certainly not the most beautiful area in Amsterdam but worth a visit. Then move on.

    You can connect the #1, 2, 5, 7, and 10 on this site. Convenient to the Museum Quarter and the Apple Store. Stay on the area.

    We found Leidseplein on a tram ride back to hotel and loved it. There are plenty places to eat and the bars are nice and busy. There is plent to do here and is a hive of activity.
