About the Tour

👉 - For two years it has been forbidden that tours go through the windows of the Red Light District where sex workers are. The tour borders them and shares a map to walk each and every one of the things that are explained.

Do you dare to know the most controversial neighborhood in Europe? Do you want to know the reality of prostitution in the Netherlands? In this Free Tour we will learn about the history of the Red Light District in Amsterdam, how it works, what it offers, if legalization implies full normalization or not, which shows are the best known and much more. Enter the red light with all the information you need , in a respectful and relaxed atmosphere . There are no unanswered questions on this tour.
During the walk we will visit the borders of the Red Light District and I will provide you with all the necessary information so that you can visit it knowing what you have in front of you.

Some of the topics we will talk about are:

  • Historical tour about the relationship between the city and prostitution.
  • La Condomerie , the world's first specialized condom store
  • How windows work: standards, prices, health and safety implications
  • The gay area of the Red Light District
  • The daycare that is located in the heart of the district. An example of coexistence
  • Main monuments
  • The spiciest shows
  • Most impressive clubs
  • The reality of legalized prostitution: trafficking, taxes, mafias and individual work decisions


The Red Light District is an experience that leaves no one indifferent and, therefore, it is absolutely essential. If you are interested in knowing this reality and forming your own opinion, do not hesitate to come with me on this tour. I guarantee you have a great time and learn together about a way to face the reality of prostitution that does not exist in our countries. I wait for you!

How to find me: I'll be right between the FONTEYN cafe and the Nieuwemarkt metro exit. There are some benches to sit on :) Look for the cafe first and then on your right is the metro exit. I will be wearing my guide badge and a blue SideWalks umbrella: D
