‘De Wallen’ is the best-known red-light district of Amsterdam. This is why we refer to the area as ‘The Red Light District’. This is the oldest neighborhood of Amsterdam and perhaps even the main attraction of Amsterdam for tourists. Buses full of tourists arrive here each hour. The real partygoers among the tourists walk around and look around enthusiastically. Sometimes they take a look inside the red-lit windows.
The ladies behind the windows can provide an enthusiast a great time for a price around 50 euros. How do the Amsterdam citizens respond to this? Well, very often they just don’t. Local residents walk calmly around the red area and during the day you can even see children playing or walking through the area themselves. There are also many Amsterdam coffee shops, sex shops and even porn theaters and shows in this neighborhood. Also you can find a number of museums here: the Museum of Prostitution, the Casa Rosso theater, the Sex Theater and the Cannabis Museum.
