RED LIGHT DISTRICT
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

For many tourists, an evening walk through Amsterdam’s red light district is a standard feature of a city tour. They want to see for themselves the lingerie-clad women offering their services behind shop windows. Red lights on the buildings confirm the special image of this city district. Referred to as De Wallen by locals, this area is a labyrinth of canals, bridges, and narrow lanes in the historic city center. This district is not just for loose women.
