Rembrandtplein, and the associated Rembrandt square are in the heart of Amsterdam. The location is amazing and has access to a number of Tram and Metro stations. There are several restaurants nearby as well (did I mention, the center of Amsterdam?) Of course, the Rembrandt square is decorated really well and has a carnival atmosphere during festive seasons.

This is 100% the ideal place to sit, have some brunch and people watch. The Rembrandt statue is genuine masterpiece. I was completely blown away by it. Well worth sitting for an hour or so in one of the many eateries round the square xx

This museum has a wonderful collection of a little bit of everything. Paintings, sculptures, artifacts, history. You don't get bored looking at hundreds of 400 year old paintings etc.Great for those who have an interest in museum fare but don't have a deep passion for it. All the staff I encountered were knowledgeable and courteous.

I went there to check out the Rembrandt monument, but decided to stay a while longer to hang out. It's a great place to chill out during sightseeing or have a taka-away lunch sitting in the sun with sounds of street music in the background, just as I did. It may be too crowded on weekends, because of street stalls.... More

Besides a big statue of the popular Dutch painter and a few interesting old buildings, this area is famous for many bars, restaurants, shops and clubs.

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...
