Take a break at Rembrandtplein, one of the most popular squares in the capital city, featuring the city’s oldest statue in a public space and a fountain. The square and the statue represent Rembrandt, who lived in the area from 1639 to 1656. You'll see a bronze representation of "The Night Watch"--one of Rembrandt's most prominent works, and a 114 sq m (1,230 sq ft) LCD screen, which you can interact with through Bluetooth. The site has become famous over the years for its numerous bars and restaurants, and it's one of the liveliest nightlife locales and meeting places in the city.

  • Amsterdam's central square where you can find a statue of the famous painter Rembrandt in the middle, and that's why it gets its name.

  • The square was busy every time we passed through it. It is surrounded by restaurants and Cafes. We ate dinner in the area two of our three nights in Amsterdam.
