The Red light district De Wallen is the neighborhood in Amsterdam that is most talked about, because of all the beautiful canal houses that are there, but also because the world's oldest profession is practiced here: prostitution. While this happens all over the world, it often happens behind closed doors. But not in Amsterdam! On the Red Light District in Amsterdam, or Red Light District, you will find prostitutes offering their 'services' behind a window. The neighborhood is known for the many sex shows, sex shops, brothels and strip clubs. It used to be a notorious and unsafe neighborhood in Amsterdam, but a lot has changed in recent years. During the day it is certainly safe to go there, although you should still watch out for pickpockets. The oldest erotic theater in the Red Light District is Casa Rosso, for 18 years and older. There is no age limit in the Red Light District, except for all shops for adults and entertainment, which are less suitable for minors.
