Overview

This area in the oldest part of Amsterdam is known for the red neon windows that display barely-dressed prostitutes advertising their services; it's all perfectly acceptable as long as it stays inside this designated area of the city.

We went here because it was spoken about for many years. It's origin goes back many centuries when sailors setting port or returning took advantage of the opportunity to connect with lovely ladies of the evening. The "oldest profession" still exists in Amsterdam and is...More

Take along your open mind and an acceptance of a different lifestyle and this tour is well worth the experience. We had a great guide with a fun sense of humour. Very interesting

Very crowded (take public transport) mass of (mostly) men moving slowing past near-naked women displaying themselves in windows. Go ahead - just to say you've been there!

We enjoyed touring the red light district. It is like a maze :) lots of interesting stores/shops. I enjoyed sight seeing and love their food - Angus Burger, etc.

Not really, but this place is not as seedy as one imagined. Amsterdam is proud of its Red Light District and intergrates the ladies of the night with sex museums, cafes and shops. It’s openness is its charm.

Day versus night totally different. Beautiful area with stunning buildings and done nice restaurants. Yes it has its seediness but keep an open mind and appreciate the area to look beyond what it is

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

You definitely have to go there. It is part of every sightseeing tour anyways. It’s one of the most vibrant parts of the city’s at night. So do not worry and have fun ;)

no chance, they are all 1 or 2 star at best, if you want 3 or 4 star, look outside red light District

There's a lot to do in Amsterdam and a lot of beautiful things to see so avoid red light there's really no point and have a walk between the canals all around the town.
