"Extremely surreal" Red Light District - De Wallen Tip by northernlady

Red Light District - De Wallen, Amsterdam: 151 reviews and 181 photos

As the title says, walking through the Red Light District is an extremely surreal experience. But, the RLD isn't just girls in windows, there are sex show theatres, a sex museum and many many sex shops (one of which contained a 12" dildo!), ironically the friendliest people we encountered throughout the whole of our visit were the people who worked the venues in Red Light. You can get a guided tour but we just wandered through ourselves- if you're travelling Alone or part make up a small group of girls- as was the case with us- be careful of the narrow back alleys which wind off the main street surrounding the canal, they had some rather dodgy looking gentlemen speaking in hushed tones down them (which is never a good thing).
