Purchased the Amsterdam CIty card and went by this square in the line 9 of the GVB (line 9 goes to Diemen). As a culture and history geek I had to check it out. So I dragged brother, father and boyfriend along just so I can see the great Rembrandt. I think it's an average square with a big statue... More

Really nice statues to have some memorable pictures with the square is very busy especially on a Saturday night great place to grab some food and plenty of places to sit and have a drink. Caterers for all needs I feel and very close to many things especially bars and clubs.

Rembrandtplein is a must see for any visitor to Amsterdam. The square is surrounded by restaurants, cafes and bars and in the centre there is a statue of the famous artist the square is named after. In the centre there is also a bronze-cast representation of Rembrandt's most famous painting "The Night Watch" which can be seen in the Rijksmuseum.

If you want to have a photo with one of Rembrands sculptures than you are right. If it is sonny you might have a problem to find one sculpture for you own to a have a shot. However, intersting.

This beautiful square has statues of the main person of the famous nightwatch painting making it almost coming alive. There are many cafes and restaurants on this square, a little too much to my liking, but I am sure that many people will definitely want to visit, there is choice! Do not forget to take a walk around in the... More

This is a beautiful plaza in located in the heart of Amsterdam. There are a broad selection of restaurants, along with open space and statues and public art. We enjoyed walking around, finally selected a restaurant, and enjoyed a meal while people-watching. It was a great experience.

I arrived at Amsterdam on Sunday, and on the same day I visited the square. What I found special wasn't just the green area or the great statues, but the simple artists who gather in the weekends to show their workings and draw in the open air! This high aesthetic sense was vary admirable to me, and represents the essence... More

Rembrandtplein is a great people watching area, full of families spending time together and tourist taking a rest from the many great art museums in Amsterdam.
