Red Light Walk
The famous and infamous Red Light District of Amsterdam! The beating heart of tourism in this old world city. Amsterdam once started here and you can still see that in the beautiful architecture and the houses that sometimes go back to the 11th century! The people of Amsterdam and the reportage style are central on this route. In the narrow alleys of the Red Light District you will encounter typical Amsterdam scenes and on the canals boats sail and swans swim. A 10-minute walk from Felix Meritis you can see Amsterdam in all its glory.
Walk out of the door at one of our locations and immediately find yourself on the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. From Dam Square you walk via Herengracht, Leidsegracht and Prinsengracht towards the serene Amstel river. The fantastic buildings and magical canals with their houseboats guarantee special photos. The entire route is packed with curious little shops and Amsterdammers who are busy with their daily chores in ‘the 9 Streets’. Aesthetic photography at its best!
