Built in 1668 the Rembrandt square was dedicated to a butter market (Botermarkt). On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt’s birth, bronze statues representing the figures in Rembrandt’s painting “The Night Round” were added to the Rembrandtplein.

On a facade overlooking the square you will see the Booking sign. Booking was founded by computer scientist Geert-Jan Bruinsma in Amsterdam in 1996, today the company employs almost 10,000 people in 50 countries.

On the square you’ll have fumes of flowering herbs, if you know what I mean, you can also attend animations like the one in the mini video: an electro street-dj who has a great time on the square and makes everyone enjoy his sound, headphones screwed on the ears.

Behind him is a coffee shop with a gigantic green illuminated sign.
