There is more to the Red Light District than meets the eye
The Wallen, also known as the rosse buurt to Amsterdammers and the Red Light District to visitors is actually the oldest part of Amsterdam. The neighbourhood offers a variety of interesting shops, pubs, fantastic restaurants, leaning gabled houses and the city’s most charming canals. There are lots of residents that live there and some very nice microbreweries and even a red light radio station. A former prostitute even created an information centre to help sex workers and inform the public about respect towards these workers.
Don’t miss the vibrant Nieuwmarkt square, the gothic Oude Kerk or a walk along the centre of Amsterdam’s Chinatown.
Architecture and Fashion
Did you know that the Red light district also has a variety of Fashion and Architecture to marvel at? Another nice idea is to go bargain hunting for fashion in the Red Light District. Several former prostitute’s windows in De Wallen have been transformed into exhibition spaces and studios for talented clothing, shoe and streetwear designers.
