Great area to relax after touring

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

Main attraction in this bustling square are the plethora of restaurants, all with outdoor seating. It was too cool for us in mid-April, but the locals were fine with eating outside. Variety of food is impressive.

Well worth a visit. Stay in a hotel in the square or get a tram to it. Plenty of pubs and restaurants to visit.

So this is not as big as some of the other squares in the city and therefore not as busy. But it is another spot for tourists and therefore full of touristy type shops, cafes etc

I've worked in this area of Amsterdam for 20 days and I didn't expect it to be that nice. Of course, I got lucky with the weather but I was suprise to discover it's one of the nicest areas of this beautiful city. Plenty to do, plenty to see. Ice bar, Heineken experience, flower market, shops, restaurants, bars, coffeshops ..... More

If you're like me and like to travel and be were the locals are, avoid this square. Only tourists and restaurants and bars that cater to them. There are some night clubs, but about those I have nothing to say.

Rembrandt square or Rembrandtplein may not be as big as Dam Square or Leidesplien but it has some good cafes and pubs around. Good for outdoor brunch. Quieter than other places. The monument in the middle is a great photo op.

We come to Amsterdam mainly to partake in the legal recreational use of sweet Mary J. This is a great area because there are a lot of shops right there, including the Bush Doctor which has outside seating that is just beautiful during the warmer months. There is great access to the tram from here and a bunch of little... More

Coincedentally our hotel was right on the square. I was later informed that it was the place to go for nightlife in Amsterdam. I would agree, there is a great night life with loads of bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Loads of space to sit outside and each a drink, it feels safe with a good crowd!
