A beautiful statue of great painter Rembrandt is the center of attraction, surrounded by century old buildings, footpaths full of outdoor seating cafes and restaurants and a very lively place with tourists clicking pictures or just milling around the place. Nice place to spend some time walking around.

If you are going to Amsterdam, you must make time to walk over to Rembrandtplein. Why? Because you will be rewarded by the sight of a fantastic piece of art, right in the middle of the square. The world-famous oil painting by Rembrandt - The Night Watch - has been brilliantly translated into a bronze, or rather a collection of... More

This square is filled with an abundance of hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes and people! It is a great place to people watch as people seem to do there in all seasons. Well worth a visit!

This is fantastic place of Amsterdam. The statues made in the Rembraqndt's way, even small dog have found the place among them. It is very nice to seat in the front of one of the coffee shops looking for the Rembrandt's statue and the statues from his "Night Watch" surrounded by tourists, visitors, children..

After seeing Rembrandt's 'the night watch' in the Rijksmuseum earlier on in the day, we decided to go and see the Rembrandt statue set in the heart of this square! Fab square, lovely architecture, great shops and bars!

Honestly the best night out in Amsterdam. It is close to most hotels and you're likely to meet some great people. During the day it is a lovely atmosphere and because it was so lovely we stayed well into the night. Also great restaurants! We had Argentinian Tapas from a restaurant in the area. We stayed at Hotel Aspen, close... More

This is the best Amsterdam square in my opinion, although it's not at the very center of city it's still very close and at all walking trails. Plan a break here and enjoy beautiful settings of statues and greenery and chill out in some of the cafes gardens.

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!
