My friend and I befriended a local while in Amsterdam. He told us he had some great local pubs he could bring us to. This was stop number one. And it was an awesome spot. It helped that we had a local with us as he handled the ordering and communication with the bar tender. We also got a little... More

My husband and I stopped in here for a couple of beers after our red light district tour. It was a quaint spot that appeared to be frequented by locals. They had a phenomenal beer selection. We met a man named Robbert who told us that he worked at a distillery and invited us to visit there, which we did... More

It's a lovely bar with a huge selection of beers (I think over 50). The barman chatted to my husband and let him try a few beers before he decided on the one... More

Fantastic selection of Dutch beers, a great atmosphere within a traditional setting, located very close to the city centre and old town. The barman was very helpful and friendly - will definitely return here if I come back to Amsterdam!

What a cool little place this is! Old school and cozy inside, loads of beers to choose from and a superb barman to take care of you. Definitely worth a stop when passing. It also had a really nice cherry beer to keep my wife happy!

We were clued into this place by our program director on a river cruise. I didn't count but there had to be more than 500'religious statutes throughout the building. What makes any Belgian bar great is their beers and Elfde Gebod no exception. A nice surprise was their own beer which was dark, smooth and delicious. If you can get... More

If you want to relax in a quaint bar with great beer and mellow music then this is the bar for you. In the noisy and chaotic atmosphere of the red light district this is a perfect oasis. As if that wasn't enough there is a great selection of beers and the barman is very friendly and welcoming.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
