Dwaze Zaken is a nice little café bar situated very close to Centraal Station. A good place for a refreshing beer/soft drink/coffee before heading off for the next round of hectic sight-seeing. A great place for people watching.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
