Great piece of history, coffee shops, decent hotels that are cheaper than near centraal station, very clean, loads of restaurants also. The statues are a great photo opportunity for photographers and people who like to pose and take selfies also.

A visit to Rembrandt Square and the flower market nearby is recommended for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Rembrandt Square has a very lively atmosphere with lots of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops all around. Nice place to click snaps as well. A short walk takes you to the market near the canal where you will find many flower shops. There are... More

After seeing The Night Watch painting at the Rijksmuseum, seeing the 3D representation sculpture grabbed my son's attention fully. He wandered in and out amongst the characters for quite a while, and gave me plenty of time to eat the Christmas street food while he explored. It was a great way to spend an hour of downtime while we explored... More

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
