Walking Tour

A visit to Amsterdam would not be complete without a visit to the world-famous Red Light District.
This unique and emblematic neighbourhood is located in the oldest historical part of the city, and it is quite shocking for some to see such an amount of transgression in such a historically and culturally rich area.

I will walk you through the streets and canals of the district, explaining to you both the history of the city, and the one of prostitution: two subjects which are closely intertwined to one another in this particular neighbourhood.

Come and join me if you wish to see how the inner city transforms during the evening!


Dam Square - The city's busy main square, easily accessible by public transport and conveniently located next to the Red Light District.

Red Light District - The neighborhood is quite small and can be easily explored on foot.

Dam Square - The idea is to end the tour where it started.
