“Loved it”
Review of Red Light District

Red Light District
Ranked #10 of 595 things to do in Amsterdam

Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

No visit to Amsterdam is complete without a visit to this district criss-crossed by narrow lanes and canals. Lots of reasonably priced food places, great bars and 'coffee shops' and tons of people. Loved the vibe of that place. Scantily clad girls do appear at the windows as the sun dips in the sky but this only adds to the charm of that place. Avoid the museum of prostitution as it's a waste of money and time. But check out the hemp and the cannabis museum.

Not as seedy as I thought p, area visited by everyone wandering around the area, boundaries about photos, rules etc very clear. Hard to avoid but not offensive

Did a tour of the Res Light District and was happy with all the information we received. It’s a whole different world out there but glad we got to do it.

We were told not to expect much and it lived up to its billing. Rather attractive ladies in their underwear standing or sitting in small window stalls... attempting to get your interest. Not much in these modern days.
