I think the Area and Population numbers in the page side bar need a revision. Outside the Netherlands there is already a misconception that Amsterdam equals The Netherlands, and these numbers don't help eliminate that: Amsterdam is the city and municipality of Amsterdam. The urban area around it consists of other towns and municipalities which are not part of Amsterdam, and Randstad is the combined name of the big cities in the The Netherlands that form a sort of belt: Rotterdam, The Hague, Amsterdam and Utrecht. The size and number of inhabitants of these areas are not information about Amsterdam and I think they should be removed. Angeloh (talk) 22:16, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No mention of slavery?[edit]

It's a bit extraordinary that this article makes no mention of slavery, when Amsterdam was a leading port city of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. A rather starling omission. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 20:12, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The map is out of date, the Municipality of Weesp is added to the municipality of Amsterdam. (talk) 12:20, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
