Rembrandtplein, Amsterdam

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.

  • Impressive, I think it is the Group of pictures of Rembrandt's night watch. Coming from the Regular breestraat you can find links Hotel Schiller. This used to be a meeting place for writers and artists. Now it is one of the most prestigious hotels of Amsterdam. On the other hand, is it a little simpler 4-star hotel Caransa. In addition to these icons you see here many horeca with English-language names.
