Visiting Amsterdam and the Red Light District

Many locals consider legalization to be the better option because of the overall benefits for everyone involved. Sex workers are afforded much better working conditions and a safer environment. Many of them employ bodyguards as an added measure of security.

The Dutch are very tolerant of peoples’ choices to indulge in prostitution or other services and activities offered in the Red Light Districts. There is a Prostitution Information Center available in the area to provide information to visitors and advice about prostitution. The District is one of the safest areas in Amsterdam and is regularly patrolled by policemen.

Best Time To visit

The best time to visit is late evening through the wee hours of the morning. Most businesses close up shop at about 2 or 3 in the morning. The general atmosphere in the District is very lively and fun. It’s a “once in a lifetime” experience for visitors, especially for those that want to get a taste of the unique and tantalizing offerings that most of us have heard about. You can get an eyeful by walking the streets and viewing the variety in the windows, but there’s also a myriad of strip clubs, peep shows, and sex theaters to choose from.

Some of the live sex shows offer viewers the opportunity to participate in the activities. In addition, there are many interesting places to visit and explore. Museums featuring eroticism, cannabis, and prostitution can be found among the many shops and cafes. Other things to do and attractions include coffee shops that offer cannabis and a wide variety of dining options.

The Dutch architecture

The Dutch architecture is especially beautiful and can be seen throughout the city of Amsterdam. There are lots of hotels in the District for visitors who want to be closer to the action and nightlife. One thing that everyone venturing into the District should be aware of is the picture-taking rule. Taking photographs of the sex workers in the District is strictly prohibited. This goes for women in the windows, strip clubs, peep shows, or sex theaters.
