The square to be when in Amsterdam. Choose a nice terrace and enjoy your drink while watching the passersby

One of the best places in the city, either to relax or smoke during the day or for a night out. The square is lined with bars, cafes and shops so its perfect. Good place to people watch.

Many pubs and restaurants around the square. People gather just to hang out, eat and drink or to party late at night. Sometimes there are street performers and in weekends there's a small market. Nice to sit and have a bite and a beer.

Sure this location is a tourist trap, but part of the attraction of this city is locations like this. Great bars, ample restaurants and of course coffee shops to choose from.

We stopped here for a little while one day whilst strolling around the city. It seems to be a nice area with shops and cafes. The statues are the feature in the square and worth checking out.

Decent area. Just stroll along and take in the views on a sunny day. Nothing special or spectacular.

We stayed on a houseboat on Amstel St just beside Bar Lempicka. That was a 15 minute walk to Rembrantsplein. And Amsterdam is so flat it's easy to walk around, and it feels safe too, just watch out for trams and cyclists... More
