A lovely square with lots of character and greenery, surrounded by cafes, restaurants and pubs, whilst in Amsterdam, we passed through here everyday on the tram, and decided to stop off here with some friends and partake in the pleasures of what Rembrandtsplein had to offer, we weren't let down, should be a 'must do' on your visit to Amsterdam!

It's such a lovely little place, I loved passing through it on the tram every day, and we ate from two restaurants there and stopped by an irish pub. It always seems buzzing and full of life!

If you are thristy and looking for a drink or two then Rembrantplein is the perfect place for you, it is fairly easy to get to via Tram and can get reasonably busy at night. It can be a bit of a tourist trap so check the prices as some bars are much more expensive than others for the same... More

Fab restaurants, coffee shoppes, park area. Nice to relax a bit amongst all of the tourist venue areas. A nice area to stroll & mingle with other tourists as well as locals.

Great piece of history, coffee shops, decent hotels that are cheaper than near centraal station, very clean, loads of restaurants also. The statues are a great photo opportunity for photographers and people who like to pose and take selfies also.

A visit to Rembrandt Square and the flower market nearby is recommended for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Rembrandt Square has a very lively atmosphere with lots of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops all around. Nice place to click snaps as well. A short walk takes you to the market near the canal where you will find many flower shops. There are... More

After seeing The Night Watch painting at the Rijksmuseum, seeing the 3D representation sculpture grabbed my son's attention fully. He wandered in and out amongst the characters for quite a while, and gave me plenty of time to eat the Christmas street food while he explored. It was a great way to spend an hour of downtime while we explored... More

the Rembrandtplein is a very good stop after seeing nearby shopping streets like Kalverstrat - during December there are many stalls selling everything hot and high-calories. the Poffertjes stand and the dutch doughnut stands are ecellent. avoid the corner belgian waffle stand - the waffles were stale.

Far from amazing, but a nice little oasis of calm with a rare splash of greenery to brighten up Amsterdam's largely dull facades. Surrounded by bars, restaurants and hotels, it quietly simmers throughout the day but really comes alive at night. The park at the centre of the square is the focal point during daylight hours as people come here... More
