Owner description: This area in the oldest part of Amsterdam is known for the red neon windows that display barely-dressed prostitutes advertising their services; it's all perfectly acceptable as long as it stays inside this designated area of the city.

Place to visit in the evening when the whole area is lit up. Too crowded. But when you are in Amsterdam, this is a must go place. Caution: don't feel awkward.
You can pay between 80-100 pounds to watch shows.
There is a Museum which you can visit.

Its an experience even you are not looking for a girl. See the place and culture in there. It is - What it is - sad in general but a piece of the city and local culture. Maybe the most known RLS in the world?

Walking around the red light district was probably one of the highlights of the trip. No where else in Europe would you see anything like it. There are lots of bars, clubs and sex shows you can go and see. There's also the secrets of prostitution that's worth a visit. The sex shows are expensive ranging from €30-£45 that's only the entry. The peep shows are €2 for a minute or so they're better value for money. Whether you walk around it in the day time or night time you will be entertained by its sights.

We walked through the area one rainy evening and were amazed by what it was not. No loud shouting or crazy music blaring. Only small groups of visitors were noticed walking up and down dimly lit, narrow streets, alley ways and over small bridges, occasionally peering into windows framed in a red glow. Police presence was unmistakable.

Everyone says you need to at least walk through it. It's just like the same area in every other city you've ever been to.
