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.

Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to

historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
