If you visit Amsterdam you must see the red light district. Amazing how coexist side by side this district and the oldest church in Amsterdam, the Oude kirk. Just a must see in amsterdam! And don't lie to yourselfe! You'll see tourist groups from all over the world with guided tours in this district!! This is one of the three areas in Amsterdam where prostitution is legal. It's got everything you would expect. There are bar, restaurants, coffee houses, coffee shops and many ladies in the window.
Taking a picture of one of the ladies is prohibited. A part of Amsterdam's history which cannot be disgarded as it is an interesting place. The area is safe and you can have a look around relatively quickly. We passed through in the morning and there were a few girls in their windows , some very attractive I must say. It is a relaxed atmosphere where you can look, but not stare and definatly not take photographs of the girls.
I expect it may be a different more authentic atmosphere as it gets dark and the red lights are more visible, but it was less crowded in the morning. It was mine and my partners first time in Amsterdam and we wanted to do as much as possible in the 4 days that we were there. With the red light district being so renowned we had to take a walk through it to see what all the fuss was about.
It was surreal, like nothing I've ever seen before! The place literally looks like something out of a movie, and if your curious and adventurous like me I'd really recommend it. The area is safe and there are lots of people around as well as coffee shops, bars and restaurants! An interesting must see location, however not for most.
Albeit a legal operation it still seems a little in your face. If I was 20 years younger it might have had more of an appeal. Profile JOIN. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers.
