Reached by tram nos. 4, 9 and 14, the square is lively and crowded till early morning. Surrounded on all sides by funky cafes, bats and restaurants, the small park in the cdntre is filled with young people. There are street performers playing the sax or accordion etc. There is a bank atm outlet on the square itself. You can... More

As I say in the title, for me this place had the perfect balance of footfall, activity, transport, whilst not being mentally busy like the Dam Square and Red Light District can be. Maybe it was the ale, the bright lights during the night and the fact I was sat nice and dry under an outdoor heater and canopy, watching... More

There are many shops and small food stands in the park in Rembrandtplein. You can also walk down to the corner to see the Rembrandt museum if you want to. It is neat public transport and very clean.

I imagine this area is great in the evening it's surrounded by pubs, etc. however in the day it's just that apart from a nice grass area in the centre and a statue of Rembrandt and other figures which are very nice to look at we enjoyed it but it was part of our planned route I wouldn't make a...

really fascinating museum, that was actually Rembrant's home. Amazing to see where he lived and how he lived...he created a home while also having a business in the same building - of selling the artwork of other painters. brilliant work, brilliant man, brilliant idea!

What a surprise to arrive at our hotel and see a crowd on the square across the street! In fact, it was not a crowd (they came later), but statues representing The Night Watch by Rembrant. He was on a pedestal watching over his people of his painting The Night Watch. The figures are meticulous representions of each person in... More

We stumbled on this square after lots of walking and spent an hour here. Loads of cafés and bars to sit in the sun and enjoy a beverage. Tip..a regular beer is 1/2 pint

This is a very busy square named after Rembrandt who lived nearby. His statue is at the center of the square, and so are statues of soldiers called The Night Watch, whose purpose is to attract visitors. The square is a center for nightlife. It attracts artists, students and other people who want to relax. There are a lot of... More
