I rented a bike for 5 days from Black Bikes and during one of my random bike rides through different parts of Amsterdam, I ran into this area. I enjoyed the area. It didn't fascinate me as much at The Joordan area but it was still worth going to see what the area has to offer. only thing i really... More

A place to sit back & relax with a hot cuppa or a cold beer while people-watch. There's a Heinekan brandstore just around the corner & a beautiful cinema down the street.

If you don't know what to do at night in Amsterdam, this is the place to be. There is a large variety of clubs, cafés and restaurants. We went there on a Saturday evening and I have to say, although it is in the middle of a metropolitan city, it felt very safe.

Don't know where to eat? Want to just sit outside and people watch? Lost your bearings? This is a good central place to navigate to. At the center of this plaza is an impressive group of life-size bronze sculptures, together depicting Rembrandt's famous Night Watch painting. A statue of Rembrandt himself looks down upon this grouping, which draws a lot... More

Full of bars, shops, coffeeshops, restaurants etc. Large seating area with statues and water fountains in the middle of the Rembrant square. In our opinion this was more impressive than Dam Square! We ate here three nights in a row and spent most of our chill out time here. A must visit!

Great location for nightlife. There is plenty to do on the square and you wont have to walk far to find somewhere to sit, eat, drink or smoke!

I had only been to Amsterdam once before back in 2004 so this was not a new adventure but I had to relearn my way around the station and how to traverse the many trains and metros. I used it to travel to Leiden, De Haag, Nijmegan and all around Amsterdam. They have a train which takes you to the... More

The place is full of pubs, restaurants and hotels. It's a great place to start and finish a good night. If you want to take some pics it is a nice place as well. And of course, if you want to relax just for some minutes it is perfect.

Great square with many pubs, very lively even on midweek nights I visited, many pubs have terraces and outdoor heaters to ensure the comfort of guests. Wide range of drinks available across the numerous bars, popular with locals and dozens of bikes.

We visited the Rembrandt Square quite a few times, it's great to just sit there with a coffee, beer and watch the world go by, plenty of bars which serve food as well, tram service will take you there and back easily,
