Amsterdam Red Light district is an area of Amsterdam where prostitution is freely practiced as it is legal in the country.
Amsterdam is rightly proud of its fully liberal and accepting mindset, which accepts that people might be involved in prostitution, soft drugs, or pornography. And that it’s just part of being human. As a consequence, rather than criminalizing anything, they relish the openness of it all.
In the Netherlands, prostitution is now legal, but not on the streets. That is why prostitutes in Amsterdam have their own space and stand up behind a window. The name “Red Light District” comes from the 300 windows where women work, which are illuminated by red neon lights.
There are three separate Red Light Districts in Amsterdam, but the one in the city center is the most popular and attractive.
