About

Nieuwmarkt is a square in the old centre of Amsterdam. The surrounding area is known as the Nieuwmarktbuurt (Nieuwmarkt district). It is located next to the De Wallen (Red Light District). In the middle of the square is a building ‘De Waag’, which used to be the building where you would enter the city, and pay your taxes.

The area is also known for Chinatown. This area was formed since the Nieuwmarktbuurt, especially on Zeedijk, has many Chinese residents, restaurants and businesses.
