The Rembrandt Square or Rembrandtplein is a bustling plaza on the edge of Amsterdam’s historical city centre, situated within the striking canal belt alongside the famous waters of the Amstel River. Popular with tourists and general nightlife enthusiasts, this vibrant environment is saturated with a sundry array of restaurants, nightclubs and bars catering to every discernible taste.
Established in 1668 and constructed from the remnants of the old city port, the Rembrandt Square was originally utilised as a butter and dairy market servicing the local burgeoning community. Continuing in this capacity for the next two centuries, the plaza received an influx of investment at the turn of the 20th century, resulting in an emergence of hotels, stores and restaurants, and the unveiling of the famous Rembrandt statue, dedicated to one of the greatest painters in European art history. With its convenient centrality, plethora of jovial establishments, electric atmosphere and close proximity to numerous principal attractions, the Rembrandt Square grants the ultimate base for visitors seeking accommodation directly in the heart of the action. We offer a wide range of Rembrandt Square apartments in all price ranges!
With its eclectic assortment of vivacious venues, the list of things to see and do within the Rembrandt Square and its immediate vicinity is seemingly endless, with the primary focus revolving around entertainment. The diversity of options ranges from ultra trendy nightclubs, including the fashionable Escape and Club Rain, to less ostentatious and more intimate venues, such as the Amsterdam institution Cafe Bolle Jan, a rather cramped yet cordial setting that plays traditional Dutch folk music until the early hours. For a similarly authentic experience yet a much more sedate atmosphere, try Cafe Schiller, a typical “brown cafe” hidden beneath an inconspicuous entrance that exudes a refined air and serves simple and affordable cuisine in a delightful art deco interior. Restaurants are indeed overflowing in this area, and it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish the culinary gems from the tourist traps. Recommended eateries include the aptly titled Burger Bar, perfect for a cheap and cheerful snack, the exclusive Indrapura that serves mouth watering rice tables, and Tomo Sushi, often considered the best sushi bar in the capital.
Choices for the day’s itinerary are also in abundance as the Rembrandt Square provides instant admission to a host of interesting attractions. A brief stroll across the picturesque Blauwbrug or Blue Bridge will deposit you at the Waterlooplein, home to Amsterdam’s most popular flea market, the fascinating Jewish Historical Museum and the simply breathtaking Portuguese Synagogue. In the opposite direction lies the world’s solitary floating flower market and one of the most spectacular movie palaces in existence, the magnificent Tuschinski Theatre.
