Full description
Experience the charms of Amsterdam’s Red Light District with a self-guided audio tour on your phone designed by an accredited expert. Listen to fascinating stories, based on an award-winning storytelling concept, and gain insights into the most talked-about quarter of the Netherlands.

Your walking tour begins at Dam Square, which is among the most important locations in Amsterdam. Find out how a simple dam on the Amstel River gave the city its name and witnessed the glorious, as well as bizarre, moments of Dutch history. Guided by an immersive audio guide, 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”, who asks all passersby to respect sex workers all over the world.

Throughout your walk, follow in the footsteps of erstwhile sailors, sex workers, merchants, and modern curious visitors. Experience unique attractions such as the Café In’t Aepjen, the “secret” chapel of Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder and Bloedstraat. Your tour ends in Nieuwmarkt, Amsterdam’s busy market square, home to the iconic Waag building. Here, you’ll discover the stories of a unique heritage site that once functioned as a city gate of Amsterdam and later became the city’s main guild-house.
