Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein are known as Amsterdam’s nightlife. Leidseplein is located in the southwest of the Grachtengordel district of Amsterdam, adjacent to the northeast of the Singel Canal; Leidsestraat, Weteringschans, and Marnixstraat meet here. Leiden Street was originally the carriageway leading to Leiden; Leiden Square was the starting point of the carriageway. It can also be said that Leiden Square today has nothing to do with Leiden, just like Nanjing Road in Shanghai has nothing to do with Nanjing. By the way, Leiden is a city in the western part of the Netherlands, in the northeast of The Hague, about forty minutes from both The Hague and Amsterdam. In the 12th century, Leiden resembled a castle complex and was founded as a city in 1,266. Today it is one of the largest cheese and beef markets in the Netherlands. Leidseplein, the most famous is the Stadsschouwburg Theater, which is like a landmark, and the area is full of tourists at night; it is also bustling during the day, because the square and adjacent streets are lined with restaurants, cafes, bars, and hotels.
