Amsterdam Red Light District: A Walking Audio Tour on your Phone (1hour)
Experience Amsterdam’s most talked about neighborhood, the Red Light district, and listen to fascinating stories, with an immersive audio tour on your phone.
Your walking tour begins at Dam Square, where you’ll find out how a simple dam on the Amstel River gave the city its name and witnessed the glorious moments of Dutch history. Then, you will continue your stroll to admire the oldest building in Amsterdam, the famed Oude Kerk. Just outside the historic 14th-century church, you’ll discover the small statue of “Belle”. She asks all passersby to “respect sex workers all over the world”. After all, the neighborhood became famous due to its housing of the world’s oldest profession.
Throughout your walk, you will follow in the footsteps of erstwhile sailors, sex workers, merchants & modern curious visitors. You will experience unique attractions, such as the Café In’t Aepjen, the “secret” chapel of Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder and Bloedstraat. Eventually, you will end your walk at Nieuwmarkt, Amsterdam’s busy market square. There, you will experience the Waag building, the city’s most famous guild-house!
