How to watch red light district window displays in Amsterdam
Amsterdam government has always been loyal to prostitution as a profession. They made it legal trying to get over the violence.

Love for sale became generally accessible, but only in particular place - in the central quarter Da Wallen. Every girl here has her working place - not a very big curtained glass booth with subdued red lighting inside, girls pay 150-euro rent for the place.

Streets with erotic windows are lit by red lamps - hence the appropriate name.

Red Light District, Amsterdam

How to do?

1. Red light district in located in the very center of Amsterdam and begins just right behind De Oude Kerk church building - sinfulness and goodness neighboring doesn't seem strange. Moreover it's one of the safest districts in the city. Police keeps discreet, but a weather eye on order here.
