Description

Discover Amsterdam's infamous Red Light District on a fun tour with a German guide. Learn how much on average a prostitute earns per night, how many customers they have per shift, and which sexual acts pay the largest sums. Choose the small-group tour with no more than 4 people that goes right into the center of the Red Light District, or opt for a public tour that tells the story of the Red Light District, visits some of its highlights, and explores other famous hotspots in the LGBTQ part of the Red Light District, Chinatown and the harbor. Red Light District Tour and Highlights Enter the heart of the Red Light District with a maximum group of 4 people plus your guide (small-group tour) or in a group of maximum 15 people (public tour). The tour highlights all the positive as well as negative aspects of the Amsterdam Red Light District, taking a critical perspective. From the National Monument on Dam Square go to Warmoestraat, one of the most famous gay streets in Amsterdam. Pass the Condomerie, a fun condom store and learn about Amsterdams contraception history. Then, go further into the heart of the district to the Prostitution Information Center (PIC) where former prostitutes are dedicated to educational work and are trying to dispel prejudices about prostitution. Directly opposite lies the Oude Kerk, the oldest church in Amsterdam and probably the only church in the world which is surrounded by prostitution. Discover more about the process of negotiations between customers and prostitutes, about their income and expenses, prices, room rental and taxes, but also about the women's security. Dive into the Red Light District’s origins and visit the harbor, the reason the red light district came about. Catch a photo opportunity in front of the “dancing houses,” one of the most picturesque spots in Amsterdam. Equip yourself with recommendations from your guide on how to keep exploring the Red Light District at your own pace. Get tips on visiting a 70s peepshow, which you can experience on your own after the tour.
