The red light district is popular for both standard tourists and sex tourists alike, and sex shops, peep shows, strip clubs and countless prostitutes selling their wares behind red-lit glass windows abound.
Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, just as it is in many other European countries and well regulated in Amsterdam, which arguably creates safer conditions for sex workers.
There are living locals in this area and the areas is full of normal tourists. DO NOT try to take photos of prostitutes even from the streets, or you might lose your camera without any warning!
Very pleasant little pedestrian street, few people around, but much less hookers, mainly middle aged plump ones some ugly some very sexy, a few good looking ones. The Red Light District consists of several canals, and the side streets between them, south of Central Station and east of Damrak.
If we look few years back, there were much more windows where prostitutes used to work.
