The municipality calls for a third time not to go to the city center because of crowds


The municipality is again calling on everyone not to go to the city center. It would be too busy there.

Municipality of Amsterdam

In order to contain the crowds, one-way traffic will also be established in the Kalverstraat. ‘The direction runs from Dam Square to Spui’, the municipality says on Twitter.

The same goes for the Nieuwendijk. The direction runs from Dam Square to the passage at Primark.

Black Friday

Last Friday, the municipality issued a similar appeal. It was Black Friday then: a day considered to be the start of the Christmas shopping season. To draw people to the stores, many stores advertised big offers and discounts.

Also this weekend there are still many promotions, which can make it busy in the shopping streets. That is why everyone was asked again yesterday not to go to the city center.


It is busy again today not only in the center. The parking lot at Buikslotermeerplein, for example, is also quite full, says one resident.
