The Leidseplein is one of the liveliest squares of Amsterdam. You can find anything here: from hotels and hostels, shops, bars and restaurants to Amsterdam’s city theatre the Stadsschouwburg and famous coffee shop The Bulldog. The terraces of the many bars that are open day and night are always full of people, with the ever present street artists providing the entertainment.

Hidden treasure

If you would ever get bored at the Leidseplein, which is very unlikely, go and see if you can find the statue of the little man up in one of the trees, who has secretly been cutting the branches since 1982.
