Red Light District, Amsterdam Overview

The infamous Red Light District of Amsterdam has been subject to many efforts by the legislators to shut it down, however, the place still thrives and attracts various tourists and interested customers to it's sex shops and bars.

Amsterdam's red light district is the oldest part of the city, and is wholly responsible for the notorious reputation of the city world over. The red light district is lined with sex shops, containing all sorts of sex toys you can think of or might ever come to need. Drug use is abundant in the area, and so are prostitutes. The red light district sees a number of window shoppers, who despite not needing to buy anything, are simply attracted out of curiosity. However, the area also has a number of hip bars and restaurants, including strip clubs. Steps have been taken, however, to control these activities in the region, with an effort to reduce the number of prostitutes and restrict drug use.
