Dictionary of Dutchness


Damrak is the somewhat tacky street full of cheap hotels and souvenir shops which runs from Amsterdam’s central station to Dam square. But the word is also used as a synonym for the city’s stock exchange as in ‘the mood was sombre on the Damrak today’. The stock exchange is actually located on the adjoining Beursplein (bourse square).
