A place right in the middle of the city

The place is very close to the city center and most of the tourist attraction including the De Wallen or the Red Light District

One of the 4 social squares of Amsterdam! A must visit & enjoy! Rembrandt square has 50+ bars and restaurants. Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Drinks, Coffee, Dinner, Dancing, Nightlife. It's ALL there. Can get very busy. Find a seat outside one of the many restaurants and watch the world go by! Visit!

Worth a quick visit for all lovers of Rembrandt Night Watch, which is reproduced here in bronze. You can take your picture "inside" the painting.

Really cool square, small but always crowded due to lots of coffee shops and cafes bars around the area. There is huge statue of Rembrandt and nice night watch at the centre if the square. Nice place to relax and take pictures.

In all my visits to the Dam I had never seen the statues but I have to say I it was well worth getting of the tram to see . I've posted some pics so see what you think . One of the reasons to get a check card for the transport system is you can jump off the tram... More

Your far better off exploring else where, Liedsplein for e.g. as this is basically a concrete square with a large Hotel, and a couple of nothing special cafe's...
