Amsterdam is one of the few cities in the world where prostitution is legal and this tour takes you the famous ‘Wallen’, the Red Light District of the city.
Accompanied by a guide, you’ll visit a red light district information centre where a former working girl will explain how the system works and answer any questions you may have. Walk through the old streets where brawls among drunken seamen were once common but where you will now find lively cafes and bars.
Don’t miss this opportunity to visit the red light district and learn more about the world’s oldest profession.
The tour starts from 26, Damrak. Accompanied by a guide, you will take a walking tour of Amsterdam’s famous Wallen, the Red Light district.
The first stop will be at a “Red Light Secrets” museum of prostitution. Here you will be explained how the system works and any questions you may have will be answered.
You will then tour the district on foot, passing old monuments and walking through old streets, one of which is the well-know Zeedijk. In the past, it was one of the most dangerous streets of Amsterdam where seamen could be found looking for amusement. Nowadays, you will find lively Dutch pubs and restaurants (the area is certainly not dangerous anymore!), instead of the shady bars of the past.
The tour ends at 26 Damrak.
