Popular place for people to sit on the grass and relax . Stalls selling paintings and so many people getting their photos in front of the statues ( why I ask you?)

Plenty of restaurants and bars with outside seating to sit and watch the world go by. Nice grass area in the centre for basking in the summer sunshine.

It was okay but certainly not wow, we visited one morning and obviously road cleaners etc had not commenced. The area to me looked like it had a "hard night", a fair amount of rubbish around, we did enjoy a coffee and being able to look over the square and the statues. Very popular spot for the commencement of walking... More

The square itself is fantastic with all the statues. The hustle and bustle of people is perfect. It's lovely just to watch the world go by. The perfect place to stay as every attraction that you want is within a 10 minute walk. Heiniken factory one way and the red light district and leidsplain the other. The ice bar is... More

A visit to Amsterdam needs a visit to this place. Several bars, restaurants and nightclubs are here. All kinds of people you can meet here. It's a typical Amsterdam place. There are always all kind of noises. This place lives!

There are many "pleins/ squares" in Amsterdam.But in my opinion, Rembrantplein is certainly the most attractive one.The cafe's around it are just so nice place s while you can eat or drink.

My last visit to Amsterdam was about 25 year ago, Rembrandplein used to be one of my favourite places. Well, it has definitely changed: positive, Mr Rembrandt has some companions, great idea, you can wonder around the sculptures of the Nightwatch. The square is surrounded by caffes, restaurants, you can drop in any time and have a snack, lunch or... More

Rembrandtplein was our local square during an 8-day stay in Amsterdam. On first visiting , we were delighted by hive of activity, the trees blossoming (it was spring) and the wonderful monument in the centre of the square. With its wide range of bars, cafes and restaurants, Rembrandtplein seems to be a bit of a magnet to tourists and locals... More
