Overview

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.

A great place for a late night stroll. Good window shopping. Plenty to see and do. What more could you want?

overrated. I feel sorry for women exhibited in windows like goods for sale. Personally, I could not look at it ...

The Red Light District isn't only about half dressed girls. There are something like 180 different restaurants in the neighborhood. It is the place to go to get something to eat. Just be-prepared to see S&M Shops, Vibrators and dildo's on display, as well as...More

Red district is an amazing visit! You may want to book a guide to understand why, when and how does the district works. For me was an interesting activity, it change my perception of the sex pay world.

It’s a legal red light district! Why are you even looking for reviews?! The girls are stunning, the environment is surreal, the drunker you get, the weirder it seems. People come in and out of the windows all day and night. Stag dos run wild...More

About as erotic as a slap round the face with a wet kipper. A quick stroll through is an integral part of a trip to Amsterdam, but be prepared to laugh rather than than be tittilated.

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

You definitely have to go there. It is part of every sightseeing tour anyways. It’s one of the most vibrant parts of the city’s at night. So do not worry and have fun ;)

There's a lot to do in Amsterdam and a lot of beautiful things to see so avoid red light there's really no point and have a walk between the canals all around the town.
