Red Light District, Amsterdam
Categories: Neighborhoods, Tourist Spots
For a view into another world, explore the infamous Red Light District, named for its bright red brothel lights. Though these districts are known around the world for hosting (in this case, legal) prostitution, sex theaters, and sex shops, this particular area has become an incredibly popular tourist destination. Explore the city's De Wallen neighborhood, which is home to its oldest and largest red-light district. De Wallen has been a popular place for prostitution since the 13th century, when the Damrak became a harbor. Walk along the canal in the evening, take in the novel sights and signs, and notice the typical 14th-century Dutch architecture in this historical district. There can be sites in this area that are not appropriate for children. A visit to Red Light District represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Amsterdam trip generator to plot your vacation.

Apesar de ser famoso, este lugar nao tem nada de especial. Todo grande centro tem seu bairro de prostituição . Este nada mais eh do que uma atracão sem qualquer tipo devaproveitamento.
