Red Light District & Old Amsterdam

No doubt about it, figuratively speaking the red lights have been shining here for hundreds of years! But associating this area only with prostitution would wrong the old heart of Amsterdam! Still the ‘Old Town’ is a world of its own, not easily giving away her secrets...

A great day!
We had a really good time! You made it a great day. Roel knew how to strike the exact right note and his distinct interest in and knowledge of (the history of) Amsterdam are a relief compared with the average city guide. T. van Zwet
