"Watch out for pickpockets...." Pickpockets Tip by sandravdp

Pickpockets, Amsterdam: 86 reviews and 37 photos


Watch out for pickpockets. Never leave your luggage out of site at Amsterdam/Schiphol Airport or the train/subwaystations! Never put your money in a bag or a pocket in the back of you trousers.

Also don't take drugs from people on the streets. Remember drugs are officialy illegal here, you can only smoke it in so called coffeeshops.

Don't go into dark alleys at night, it's not safe!

On the picture: here I am standing at Dam Square. Behind me you can get a glimpse of the royal palace.
