This Square has a monument of Rembrandt and a cast of other folks around him. There is a fountain and street musicians perform. Opposite the Square there are restaurants galore.

Great night life ranging from smokey ( yes that kind) bars, cafes, restaurants and night clubs. Day time take that must do photo shot with statues in the square. Good shopping strip radiates off the square. Tram runs through it. From 10am lots of breakfast options.

Very pretty but you can tell this it the touristy area of Amsterdam, it is pricier than the red light district and they have people at the entrances to the bars/shops who have rules that you need to abide by, mandatory to buy a drink, bag checks, etc. Not a problem, but we are used to a more laid back...

We stayed in Amsterdam three days recently and discovered this place by accident. We loved it. The recreation of the Rembrandt masterpiece Night Watch in statue form was just magical. The entire area is lively and in fact a party on weekends. We ate at the lovely De Kroon restaurant overlooking the plaza.

Our hotel was less then a minute walk from there so naturally we spent most of our nights in the bars and resturants in the area. We enjoyed it alot!

Our hotel wasn't far from here and out tour guide suggested a restaurant here. We enjoyed the statues from The Night Watch, and the general, happy, lively ambience. Lots of cafés, restaurants of many types, and coffee shops--if you know what I mean!

This Square is a great place by both day and night. Loads of tourists during the day attracted by the display of The Night Watchmen and a good variety of places to eat and drink at night. The Square is easy to get to by tram but just as easy on foot. A must place to visit whilst in Amsterdam.

Nice little square and nice scenery. The place of smokeys coffeeshop which can't be missed. Nice little bars but a little pricey. Amsterdam itself is not cheap and this sums it up. Worth a visit

If you want a very busy, active spot this is it. Lot's of people, restaurants, bars, street entertainers and fun. You could easily go here for an evening and wonder where the time has gone. A must-see in Amsterdam.

Great coffees and restaurants close to the place, very easy to arrive with public transportation. It´s a very nice area also to book hotel or hostel. Lovely to be sitting on the grass.
