Amsterdam Walking Tour of the Red Light District, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Red Light District
Amsterdam's Red Light District is worth a look, especially if it's your first visit to Amsterdam — it's definitely something you don't see every day back home!

One misconception is that visitors expect to see "girls in the windows" wherever they walk along the canals. Actually, the girls in the windows can be found mainly in the alleys — but which alleys? You'll have to wander around the area and find out for yourself. Or take a Guided Walking Tour of the Red Light District.



According to co-host Matt Lauer during one of the "Today Show" visits to Amsterdam... "the windows — they are doors actually — are always bordered by dark, polished wood, with polished brass doorknobs. And the girls stand there, and tap on the glass, like YOU are the one in the pet store, to get your attention."

Amsterdam Red Light District Guided Walking Tour

Take a walk on the wild side with a Guided Walking Tour through Dark Amsterdam, the infamous Red Light District. Accompanied by a friendly and knowledgeable local, you'll tour the area in safety for an enlightening and illuminating experience!

The tour takes you to the area that's synonymous with Amsterdam, the Wallen (Red Light District), passing monuments and entering narrow old streets such as the well-known Zeedijk street. In the past it was one of the most dangerous streets in Amsterdam, where sailors could be found searching for local amusement. Nowadays, instead of the shady bars of yester-year you'll find lively and welcoming Dutch pubs and restaurants.

The walk includes a visit to the Prostitute Information Center, where you will be offered a free drink and can chat with a former prostitute who will explain the system and answer any questions you might have.

Your safety is guaranteed during this excursion into Amsterdam's darker side, as a reliable and trustworthy guide will be accompanying you.
