Rembrandt Square is one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful squares and at its centre is a statue of the famous Dutch painter after whom it is named.
Animated by street performers, lively cafés, excellent restaurants and several nightclubs, including the Escape and club Rain, Rembrandtplein is, together with Leidseplein, one of the centres of Amsterdam’s nightlife, popular with both residents of the Dutch capital and tourists.
The square is overlooked by the renowned café De Kroon, one of the most sumptuous in the city, and the café Schiller, famous for its Art Deco interior.
A short distance from Rembrandtplein is the Amsterdam Stock Exchange and the Hendrikye Stock Exchange Museum.
The Rembrandtplein statue , placed on the square in 1876, depicts a pensive Rembrandt looking out over the Jewish quarter where he lived for 20 years before falling into disrepair and moving to the Jordaan, then a working-class district.
In 2006, the 400th anniversary year of Rembrandt’s birth, the statue was flanked by 22 bronze figures that create a three-dimensional replica of the artist’s most famous masterpiece, The Night Watch.
