Amsterdam’s Red Light District may stand as a renowned example of legalized prostitution with its mix of erotic theaters, mannequin-like girls behind the glass, and sex stores. However, it’s more than that. Locally known as De Wallen, it’s the region’s oldest neighborhood, allowing you to glimpse into the life from a bygone era. Come take our two-hour guided walking tour to experience the diversity of this controversial yet charming district.
As the tour begins, your guide will lead you through the narrow lanes, beautiful canals, and elite streets of the district. You’ll not only get to experience the liberal sex scenario and burgeoning café culture that prevail in the region, but also know about its notorious past. You’ll further listen to the heart-warming stories of workers here, before you set out to take in the region’s top attractions plus specialties covering video cabins and S&M specialist sex shops.
See the Condomerie – the first of its kind condom specialty shop, visit the Red Light Secrets - the one of its kind museum dedicated to prostitution, marvel at its many hidden sculptures, and get to know more about the region’s workers with the Prostitute Information Centre. Apart from these, there are many legendary sights worth visiting in the vicinity, mainly the leather neighborhood of Warmoestraat and Oude Kerk or the Old Church which is also the city’s oldest structure.
