7/26.- Amsterdam, Nieuwmarkt


Nieuwmarkt and its neighborhood is a very lively place full of restaurants and shops, lots of them Chinese.

The Zeedijk, its major street, hosts Europe’s first Chinese Imperial style Buddhist temple: Guan Yin Shrine (see photo).

On the Nieuwmarkt Square you will see the Waag (Weigh House), a bar-restaurant today, it was part of the city fortifications.

You will discover many more sights as you walk down the Antoniesbreestraat until you reach the Waterlooplein: the Zuiderkerk, the Pintohuis (Openbare Bilbiotheek), the Museum Het Rembrandthuis, the Portuguese-Israelite Synagogue and the Jewish Historical Museum, and the Stopera (City Hall and Music Theatre on the Amstel).
