Holland in the 12th century was barely habitable. The land was very humid and consisted mainly of peat. Various rivers intersected the landscape. One of those was River Amstel, which flowed into River IJ. By the end of the twelfth century a small settlement arose near a dam in this river. Thanks to this dam the city is called Amsterdam. Apart from that, this dam is still the most important place in the city, but it is now used as a square. Amsterdam became a town at the beginning of the 13th century, after the then sovereign lord declared it juridical as a town.

The Nieuwmarktrellen (Nieuwmarkt riots) broke out in 1975 when residents angered by the demolition revolted. Demolition was stopped, and the highway building project was cancelled.

Several private groups were formed to restore the city. Restoration efforts continue today. The Port of Amsterdam's city center has been returned to its former glory and is, for the most part, a protected area.
