  Bar in Rembrandtsplein
by codrutz

Rembrandtsplein (Rembrandt's Plaza) is truly one of my favourite places to be in Amsterdam. This large square is full of cafes and bars. In 1876 the statue of Rembrandt was put in the center of the square, giving the name (formerly the square was known as The Botermarkt).

The tram has a stop right here, named, of course, Rembrandtsplein. You can choose one of the many outside tables to have lunch, dinner, or just a snack and a drink (beer of course).

I was there exactly in the day of the football match between Holland and Germany !! :) Oddly enough, the game ended 1-1 and the day after that my itinerary took me to Germany :)

Holland is very serious about its national football team. That day every bar was orange and orang(er) than the other, to attract more customers, football fans, to watch the game. There were every kind of wear in orange, from t-shirts to socks :) I was especially amused by a hat that looked like a football field, and it also had a ball :)
