Amsterdam Rokin Street

Thinking of things to do in Amsterdam? The list of attractions in this exciting city is endless… But let us tell you a little bit more about one of Amsterdam’s most popular streets – Rokin street.

If you are arriving to the city by train, this is probably one of the first streets that you will be visiting. When you step out of the Central Station, and you follow the Damrak until you reach the famous Dam Square, the next street you see when continuing straight ahead, will be Rokin street! Because of that, together the Damrak and Rokin are sometimes called the “Red Carpet” of Amsterdam. The carpet leads to the Munt Square.

Get to know the Rokin street in Amsterdam

What was once a part of the Amstel River is now a busy street and a tourist hot spot. One third of Rokin is still a canal, the rest was filled in and became a street. The Rokin street connects between two major attractions on both sides, the Dam Square and the busy Spui Street, near the Singel Canal, on the other side. Often canal cruises depart from this street, as well as from the nearby Damrak, the other major street in the old center of the city. Canal cruises are a great way to explore the Amsterdam city center from a totally different perspective. We highly recommend it!

There’s plenty of amusement to find at Rokin street: from shoe shops to eateries, and from museums to canal cruises – it’s all there! Due to construction work on the new subway, the street appears a bit messy now, however you can still enjoy the sight of beautiful historic houses at Rokin. Also there’s an archaeological museum, the Allard Pierson museum that belongs to the University of Amsterdam.
