This bridge leads to Leidseplein, a square at the center of an entertainment district. In every direction are about 100 restaurants and cafes with a spectrum of menus and prices. The bars and clubs provide sidewalk and terrace sipping by day and rocking music at night. Shoppers have enough options to keep them busy. Holland Casino offers table games and slots to those over 18. And street performers work tirelessly for tourist tips. Not surprisingly, there are an array of accommodations nearby, from expensive chains to boutique hotels to hostels. In the winter, the square is flooded for ice skaters.
