From the Jewish quarter in Amsterdam it’s a short walk or a tram stop to a square with the name Rembrandtplein. It was named after the famous Dutch 17th century painter Rembrandt van Rijn. For 15 years this square has had a copy of the Night Watch painting made of statues. People were free to take pictures and walk along the statues. Therefore it attracted many visitors. Unfortunately they removed all of them. The only statue left is the one of Rembrandt van Rijn himself.
However, there are still many reasons to visit this place. There are restaurants, cafés and even nightclubs surrounding the square, for instance the Escape. Over the years this square has served many purposes, from Christmas market to information stand at the internationally reknown documentary film festival, the IDFA. It is certainly worth a visit when you’re in Amsterdam.
