This park is just around the corner from where our hotel was... a block away from the famous Amstel River.
This is a lovely park, peaceful and green. A pleasure to sit and relax in. There is a little cafe on the one side too where you can have something light to eat and a hot drink. Of course, all around the park there are bars and cafes, as there is quite a big nightlife here.
So in the midst of the busy city, this park is an oasis.
The great Dutch painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, better known as Rembrandt, was born in Leiden, but moved to Amsterdam as a young man to study art. He is one of the most prolific painters in Western Art and his subject matter ranged from nudes to religious pieces.
There is a museum dedicated to the artist here in Amsterdam, (click here) as well as this impressive square, Rembrandtplein, complete with a small park, a statue of the artist and some of the best nightlife in the city.
