Meet your guide in front of the Central Station of Amsterdam at the tram B sign. From here you will walk to the “Red Light District”. The first part of the tour leads through an old sailor neighborhood called the Zeedijk Street and Amsterdam’s famous Chinatown. This part of the Red Light District used to be a no-go area but has totally changed to a safe and friendly part of the city. In this area you will see sights like Amsterdam’s Buddist Temple, pub the Ape and the Waag.

Then walk to the Old Church, the oldest building in Amsterdam, here we are in the center of the Red light District. In this area you will see many things like the narrowest street of Amsterdam, the first coffeeshop, an indoor prostitute street and many smartshops. Walk through the famous prostitute streets with the red lights and learn about the history and current situation of the Red Light District. Learn why prostitution is legalized and how the name “coffeeshop” was created.

Our guide Stan made this an excellent experience. We really recommend doing the tour with him since he is a great guide! He showed us many sights and streets we would never found by ourselves. Highly recommended!
