Full description
In many places in the world you will find a Red Light District. None is as famous as the one in Amsterdam. Most likely because the area is open to all visitors of the city. Those seeking adult entertainment will find many options in the area. Those looking for fun in the many bars can party all night long. Those in search of "tolerated" marihuana will have several coffeeshops to choose from. And last but not least, those looking for history and culture will take great interest in exploring the oldest part of the city.

After meeting with your guide outside the local bar Groote Swaen, you will start walking through the Red Light District. See yourself the women in lingerie behind the Red Windows beckoning to potential clients walking down the streets. Smell the smoke coming out of the coffeeshops and see all the fun going on in the many bars, shops, shows, museums and theaters.

Admire the oldest church of the city, whose origins date back to the 13th century. Discover the former town hall of the city, nowadays 5* star hotel Sofitel the Grand. Learn about the history of pawnbrokers in Amsterdam and find out where Rembrandt painted the famous anatomy lessons of Dr. Tulp.

After having seen all these different aspects of the area, be invited for an included drink back at the local bar Groote Swaen.
