The apartment is 1 minute walk to Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square). This square is a major square in central Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is named after the famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn.
The square used to be a butter market but developed into a centre for night-life with the opening of various hotels and cafés. There are bars chock-a-block with people singing along to Dutch folk songs at the top of their voices, and a few large clubs. This makes it very popular with tourists as well.
The popularity of Rembrandtplein has arisen along with the café terraces, which are packed during summer. In the middle of the square is a green rectangle of grass with a statue of Rembrandt himself, in front of which there used to stand smaller statues which were representative in his most famous painting The Night Watch.
