Located on the easterly side of Rembrandtplein is the relatively new Markt Supermarket, which carries only fairly expensive organic, free range and fair trade products. The produce is nice, but be careful of fruit flies in the fruit. When we buy their fruit our flat is full of those little annoying bugs for days.

Watch people, drink beer and snack on wonderful food - You can do it all here. The people are friendly and it is a great place to enjoy the summer weather! I venture to say that there is a cafe, bar, restaurant or shop for everyone here!

Spent several hours here the night Germany played France in the world cup. Loved all of the energy and how friendly everyone was. Had a nice meal, a couple of beers and great conversation. The park is awesome for people watching and the sculpture of Rembrandt's Nightwatch is beautiful.

This is a nice plaza about 10 minutes by tram or a 20-minute walk from Centraal Station. There are plenty of restaurants to eat at or to get a drink at. It's probably really touristy, but I was a tourist in Amsterdam, so it was perfect for us. The plaza itself was also nice to sit at to catch a... More

This is the heart of Amsterdam night life. Lots of bars and pubs, also clubs and dance places too. Some places will charge for you to go dancing, but most places do not. Perfect for a night out!

The plein is bombarded with busloads of tourists come to see the Rembrandt and Nightwatch statues. We took a table, had a nice morning tean and watched the world (tourist and local) go by.

4 of us, Singapore ladies, witnessed the mass celebration of the 4th successive win of dutch title of Ajax Amsterdam at Rembrandtplein. There were massive turn up and you find pools of people in high spirit, singing and cheering. Though there were police on horses patrolling the area, the situation was still very orderly. People were drinking but behaving graciously.... More

First time I visited Amsterdam I stayed here and probably this is why I love this place. It is a very nice place to spend time from the first hours of the day - when they clean the streets and everything is clean, to the late hours in the evening/morning, when the last party people head home. There are caffee... More

Very enjoyable walk through the narrow cobble stone streets. Old architecture retrofitted to house clothing brand stores. There's a restaurant and bar every turn you take, I am sure there are many more good places but the one I happen to eat at was quite bad. There's a good balance between big branded stores and local owned businesses.
