Amsterdam Red Light District

Amsterdam Red Light District

If you want to see Amsterdam, quite literally, in a different light, the Red Light District is a must-see destination! The Red Light District in Amsterdam is by far the most famous red light district in the world. But did you know that it is one of the oldest as well? Centuries of history are crammed in this 250 x 250m2 area, from the oldest, still existing building in the city, dating back to the 13th century, to the bronze statue, commissioned in 2007, which is an homage to prostitutes.

The Red Light District: from sketchy neighborhood to iconic landmark

The Amsterdam Red Light District started off as a sketchy neighborhood where sailors would go to spend their money on beer and prostitutes. It is one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam and has beautiful 17th-century architecture. The present thankfully has not yet fully caught up to this part of the city, making it one of the most iconic landmarks in Amsterdam. A day in the past of Amsterdam’s most famous and notorious neighborhoods, an experience you cannot pass up on!
