Leidseplein is a square in central Amsterdam, Netherlands. It lies in the Weteringschans neighbourhood, immediately northeast of the Singelgracht. It is one of the busiest centres for nightlife in the city. Historically, the square was the end of the road from Leiden; it served as a parking lot for horse-drawn traffic. Today, modern traffic travels through the square and side streets are packed with restaurants and nightclubs.
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.

The daily flea market on the square is popular with tourists. The Stopera city hall and opera building and the Mozes en Aäronkerk church are at Waterlooplein.
