"Sadly the same warning as many..." Pickpockets Tip by stefank60

Pickpockets, Amsterdam: 86 reviews and 37 photos

Sadly the same warning as many others on here about the crime. Pick pockets everywhere - keep everything very close and in inside/zipped or buttoned pockets. I had my air ticket and passport stolen and only discovered this 30 mins before my flight home was due to take off !!! That was an experience. Also the red light district does feel less safe than the one in Hamburg although I dare say both have their criminal element. Also heard of a group of guys threatened at knife point by drug dealers

Address: Amsterdam
