What a great area to sit and enjoy something to eat and.or drink. I love to people watch, so this was also a good place to do this. If ever in this part of the woods, this is worth a visit. Loved the bronze status of Rembrandt

This place comes alive at night, all the restaurants are half decent. Don't be fooled, some of the restaurants do not look as nice as I initially thought they would (for a capital city anyway) but after eating in around four of them I would consider them fair value and decent food. The couple of bars and nightclubs are decent,... More

This place was just behind our hotel like 2 mins on foot. And there is some Nightlife going on there but it's not too loud really. I am not a Nightlife person so i can tell you if it's too loud. There aren't really Disco clubs, more like chill out bars and a lot of restaurants. Many different cuisines to... More

Me & my girlfriend ate & drank in a few bars around here. A statue of Rembrandt with lifesize bronze staues showing his painting 'Night Watch'. Worth a visit if you're in Amsterdam.

The small square is worth a visit if you are in the area. beside the statue of Rembrandt is a series of lifesize bronze statues depicting the artists' painting Night Watch.

Our favourite thing to do on Rembrandtplein is to eat at Indrapura. It has the best Indonesian food in the city. And if you go at 5 p.m. and are out before 8 p.m. you get reduced rates.

Centrally located, this place will allow you to actually walk around a Rembrandt's painting. Surrounded by small places to have a cup of coffee, you will be able to enjoy the square pretty much day or night.

Cheerful square depicting "the nigh watchers" from Rembrandt's famous picture, with his statue overlooking the square. Located in the middle of a very lively area with lots of places to eat and hang around.
