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

After walking the whole day in Amsterdam, most tourists will stop at this square for a break or making picture of the 'Nachtwacht'( Nightwatch) statues in the front of Rembrandt statue. It's used to be a square where you can sit en enjoy your time but now it's too crowded. Once in a while there is an event, they set... More

We went to Rembrandtplein innumerous times when we visited Amsterdam. It is basically a square (albeit a very busy one at night) that offers (in our opinion) some of the better restaurants in the city. Great place to have fun and people watch for both tourists and locals.

Great square for locals and tourists to go out as a group, whether it is business or pleasure. You are bound to walk into a 'gezellig' (cozy) bar if you are visiting in the evening and feel right at home. If you are visiting during the day, you are sure to find some seating space out in the sun on... More

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. When in... More

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.
