Rembrandt square or Rembrandtplein may not be as big as Dam Square or Leidesplien but it has some good cafes and pubs around. Good for outdoor brunch. Quieter than other places. The monument in the middle is a great photo op.

We come to Amsterdam mainly to partake in the legal recreational use of sweet Mary J. This is a great area because there are a lot of shops right there, including the Bush Doctor which has outside seating that is just beautiful during the warmer months. There is great access to the tram from here and a bunch of little... More

Coincedentally our hotel was right on the square. I was later informed that it was the place to go for nightlife in Amsterdam. I would agree, there is a great night life with loads of bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Loads of space to sit outside and each a drink, it feels safe with a good crowd!

The square surrounded by restaurants, bars, coffee shops, a night club and a few hotels, contains a large bronze statue of the man himself, Rembrandt. In front of his statue, are several smaller statues of his most famous painting, 'the night watch'. A lovely place for an outdoor cup of coffee or a glass of wine, the square also has... More

A beautiful statue of great painter Rembrandt is the center of attraction, surrounded by century old buildings, footpaths full of outdoor seating cafes and restaurants and a very lively place with tourists clicking pictures or just milling around the place. Nice place to spend some time walking around.

If you are going to Amsterdam, you must make time to walk over to Rembrandtplein. Why? Because you will be rewarded by the sight of a fantastic piece of art, right in the middle of the square. The world-famous oil painting by Rembrandt - The Night Watch - has been brilliantly translated into a bronze, or rather a collection of... More

This is fantastic place of Amsterdam. The statues made in the Rembraqndt's way, even small dog have found the place among them. It is very nice to seat in the front of one of the coffee shops looking for the Rembrandt's statue and the statues from his "Night Watch" surrounded by tourists, visitors, children..
