This is one of the most famous parts of the city and not without a reason. In the middle of the square it's the artist's statue as well as a theme about one of the most famous paintings of the artist. There are many bars,cafes...More

During the daylight hours, especially when it's sunny, the square's terraces are a nice enough. Expect a lot of tourists and buskers. At night, the place turns into a clubbing area. As a local, I enjoy the Marqt supermarket that offers (relatively) ecologically friendly products,...More

This is a great spot to pick a bar and do some people watching. There’s a Christmas market here and ice rink, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants around. The Night’s Watch statues are also here and are a great attraction and definitely...More

This is a must visit. Lots of lifelike figurines from the Night Watch. Good to take photos, or run around in the maze of people.

On our way to the Flower Market, came through the square. Interesting, lots of tourists and wish we had been able to enjoy some of the restaurants that surround the square. Worth a visit! Lots of cameras, ipads, and iphones in use!

A good place to stroll with beautiful statues and good cofee shops. Easy to reach with tram near the center of Amsterdam and nice area for restaurants.

This was a nice little square surrounded by restaurants and is great for people watching. There’s also a bronze replica of Rembrandts Night Watch that is worth seeing.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

We stayed on a houseboat on Amstel St just beside Bar Lempicka. That was a 15 minute walk to Rembrantsplein. And Amsterdam is so flat it's easy to walk around, and it feels safe too, just watch out for trams and cyclists... More

Rijksmuseum, van Goghmuseum + Anne Frank museum in one day? My daily attention span for museums/exhibitions is about 2 hours, 3 if I stretch it. I would instead try to spend some more time outdoors walking around and soaking up the atmosphere. I would advise to invest a bit of time learning how to use Google maps. It will show you the distance between any two chosen points, the route options, how long it will take you etc. and also give you public transport options.

Going to Amsterdam in May 2010 for my 25th birthday. Not my first time out of the country, but my first time to Europe. I've got all the common sense of a traveler so I'm pretty sure I'll be alright but just a couple quick ?'s 1) The trams in Amsterdam are easy enough to navigate right? I'm sure this will be our sole way of getting around. I'm not 100% on that whole bike thing.. 2) The Holland Casino, a friend of mine told me you had to pay to get in there, is that true? 3) Weather...More

Brian has beat me to it (again!) and I agree with his comments, though would add that at the Casino you need to take your passport with you on your first entry. Forget the bike thing; take the trams or a taxi!! ;-) In May the weather is very changeable; if it is as cold as 60 F (16 C) it is unusual - I would expect it to be nearer 20C, if not above! The Rembrandplein is jam packed with all sorts of restaurants and bars to suit all budgets - Brasserie Flo, as Brian mentioned is good,...More

Greetings- I will be back in town next week and would love to meet for a beer. Can we organize something, maybe Saturday or Sunday afternoon someplace easy to find in the center of town, Dam Square, Leidsplein, Rembrandtplein? I'd love to meet all the "experts" and have a few laughs. Any interest?? Thanks-Sandy
