Red Light District, Amsterdam

Explore the Red Light District on your university or college trip to Amsterdam.

The Red Light District is a labyrinth of medieval alleyways, making up the inner-city area locally known as De Wallen.

Operating as a major trading harbour since the Middle Ages, Amsterdam quickly became a magnet for the it's most popular profession.

As early as the 1300s, women carrying red lanterns met sailors near the port, triggering a flood of bars, clubs and entertainment venues into the area, that are still thriving today.

There are numerous museums located in the area to visit; including the Sex Museum and Hash, Marijuana and Hemp Museum.
