Hostels Amsterdam The Red light District
Amsterdams Red light District , Hot or Not
Windows with hookers and tulips behind it, pimps wearing clogs and drug dealers riding bikes? The Dutch Red Light District is known all over the world. But what’s really there to see & where should you go?
Besides window shopping there are also sex- and peep shows presented everywhere. For only €2 you can dug into one of the theatres and see some live action. You can rent a private cabin for 4 minutes to witness the show or to watch different video screens (You name it, you’ll see it).
The Red Light District finishes at the Zeedijk. Hey wait, it’s not time to head home yet! This is also thé place for great & cheap food and some typically Dutch pubs (Café Oostwest, 85; de Engel van Amsterdam, no. 21). Want to meet a real, lo-cal, Amsterdam Dutchie? Visit one of these bars to find yourself surrounded by; Dutch curtains, Dutch carpets on the tables, very Dutch music and the famous Dutch beers off course. It doesn’t get any Dutcher than this! Had as much a culture shock as you can handle, Café lime (104) is a beautiful hip lounge bar with seventies furniture and very tasty cocktails. Next to this, the square at the end of the Zeedijk is surrounded by café’s and bars. The Rembrandt square might be there for the tourists, this Nieuwmarket square is there for the Dutch! You’ll find different bars with different vibes: Café Cuba breaths a Latin feeling (more cocktails), Café ‘t Loosje has loads of good beers and features ‘rock’ music and Café Fonteyn is thé student hangout serving great sandwiches..
Wherever you go no matter what happens, your night has to end in the notorious San Francisco Bar at Zeedijk 40. Expect nothing and you’ll get everything. In the morning you can start stumbling back to your hostel bed. You’ve been to Amster-dam…Red Lights…Tell everyone about it or never tell a soul, but come again. Because with its red lights, bright sights, green grass, great hash, Dutch beer and relaxed atmosphere Amsterdam is definitely HOT! (Except in winter, haha)
