It's a famous location that we all have to see at least once, but how do you make the most of a trip to Amsterdam's Red Light District?
Chances are, if you haven't heard from an expert there's probably a lot you don't know about De Wallen. Like did you know there's a section where only she-males work? Or that the average session with a prostitute rarely lasts more than 10 minutes? All of this doesn't even take into consideration the individual stories and legends that have grown up since prostitution was legalised in 2000 by the Dutch government. Hear it all on this one-of-a-kind Red Light District Walking Tour.
Your guide will reveal the history behind prostitution and its current status in the Dutch capital, as well as key points throughout De Wallen. These include everything from the ubiquitous brothels with their display windows to sex shops, peep shows, theatres and more. During the tour you'll receive entry to the Red Light Secrets Museum, where all the facts, figures and experiences of the sex workers come to light.
