Rembrandt Plein (Rembrandt Square) is a very popular and vibrant square in Amsterdam with impressive Rembrandt statue placed in the center of the square in 19th century. In commemoration of Rembrandt’s 400th birthday, bronze figures from Rembrandt’s famous painting “Night Watch” were placed in front of the statue in 2006. When I visited the square in 2010, however, I could not see those Night Watch figures, because they were on exhibition tours to New York, Moscow and Oranienbaum until 2012. But when I visited the square in August 2019, the Night Watch figures returned to Rembrandt Square, standing in front of Rembrandt Statue. The Night Watch figures were elaborate and detailed representation of Rembrandt’s master piece. The statue area was crowded with visitors posing for souvenir photos. Rembrandt Statue was not the only magnet drawing countless visitors to the square. The square with many restaurants, cafes, bars, and hotels attracted many visitors, making the square a vibrant place day and night. The square could be easily reached by metro or tram.

I was surprised how much we liked the area, one block north of the canal. Numerous restaurants and some budget hotels. Very good Thai restaurant just off the canal, before you reach the square hosting the Rembrandt statue.

Not a beautiful area but at Xmas, it was enlivened this year by a new ice rink taking over most of the square. The christmas lights surrounding it looked superb.

Our hotel was a coupe blocks and a bridge away form this Plaza.Great place to get the Tram, find a pub, or eat dinner. From here, it's an easy walk to the Museum District.

Loved the sculptures, walkabout, grass and pavement, surrounded by numerous eating and drinking establishments. Our visit was at night but the square was very busy.
