Famous for its nightlife and liberal culture, no place is perhaps more infamous than the Red Light District in Amsterdam. Find anything from sex shops, unique museums, the infamous brothels, popular nightclubs, and even the first coffee shop in Amsterdam.

This place has all one needs for an unforgettable experience. And, contrary to what anyone might think, the atmosphere here is actually quite friendly. Light-spirited fun, for adults.

Walking through the Red Light district or ‘De Wallen’, especially in the late afternoons, you can notice scantily clothed women standing behind glass windows offering their “services”. Indeed, prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, provided that it is not done in the streets and that these women pay their taxes.

While wandering through this racey district, if you spot an open window with a red light illuminated on top, this means that a prostitute is currently available for “work”. Once the window is closed and the red light turned off… well, it’s pretty obvious what that means!

While it may even have its own museum of sex, The Red Light District Amsterdam isn’t all about sex. There are also many delicious restaurants that offer both local and international cuisine as well as plenty of drinks.
