Something for everyone here , great places to eat that suits all budgets , the Australian bar is a great breakfast , Smokeys for a coffeeshop is way to touristy for me tho Hunters is just round the corner and the Bushdoctor is 2 min walk away and in a nice leafy quiet cobbled road

First visited on Sunday with Fair ongoing and TONS of people. Activity filled, just not my cup of tea. Returned mid-week to visit other museums and after the grounds had been cleaned by crews. A lovely space used by visitors, residents and school children for their PE. Great space!

Nice square to rest your feet, have a Heineken, and even pose with one of the life-size statues from Rembrandt's Night Watch which are at the base of the artist's statue. Easy to reach this square by tramway.

And of course everyone ends up going there. It is unique , surprising how much of the flavour of Amsterdam you can feel and experience in such a small area. Lots of cafes, restaurants, bars... Enjoy!

Nice statue composition, but a really good place to play for children. We made super funny pictures here. Otherwise nothing special.

Worth a look as the statues in the square are really good. Nice place for a beer and snack. When done, just a short walk to the flower market along the canal is worth the effort.

A fair-sized plaza with a small garden in the middle of it. The plaza features a statue of Rembrandt and a three dimensional reproduction of his famous painting: "The Night Watch". The plaza is lined with pubs, clubs, restaurants and hotels. It is very lively, especially at night, but at the same time it is very loud and, in the... More

Great little square, small market on sunday. We stayed in a hotel just off the square and thought it was a great location. The cinema club bar does great drink deals. The Australian bar good food and 2 happy hours and the Irish pub does a huge delicious breakfast. 20 mins walk from central station or a quick tram ride... More

Another square in Amsterdam with lots of hotels and options to eat. Anytime I strolled through the restaurants were packed with people enjoying a drink. The actual statute of Rembrandt and those around him make for some impressive sculptures to take in.
