About Rembrandtplein

Rembrandt Square is located in Central Amsterdam and is named after the famous artist Rembrandt van Rijn. Originally a butter and dairy market, Rembrandtplein has long left its farm friendly origins behind and these days you are far more likely to find yourself enjoying a latte on the terrace of a café than buying milk from a farmer.
