Little and quiet park; great illuminated

Unfortunately, Rembrandt lost this home and his belongings to bankruptcy, so you won't see his actual belongings. The house has been restored to resemble what it must have looked like during his years of residence. It's educational and a complimentary audio device provides you with a personal guided tour of each room.

Walking back from a visit to the Rembrandt house nearby we encountered an unexpected sight. In a busy square before us, like giant chess pieces, was a bronze-cast life size depiction of the Rembrandt's famous painting, 'The Night Watch'. The figures of the nearly 20 men depicted in the paintings are standing in a group, swords drawn, ready to defend... More

Rembrandtplein is surrounded by typical Dutch cafés, eateries and shops located in beautiful historical buildings. It's easily accessible by tram or on foot from Dam square or the nearby flower market. There is also a movie theater nearby. Lots of hustle and bustle, especially during the summer months.

Its about 15 mins walk fro Dam Square and same... More
