Red light district

You must visit this neighborhood if you visit Amsterdam. The area with the girls are narrow streets with some red lights on the doors, that are like cabins. WHen I went (last Christmas), they were cheeky, so I recommend that you have your bags and wallets safe to not be robbed. Some girls were very young but there were older ones and obese ones. Incredible. I recommend to visit the sex shop and the erotic museum where you can find interesting objects at a good price. It´s totally normal to pass by and look. The store of the preservatives (I don´t remember the name, it is very interesting, now I will put up photos. There were preservatives with the shape of the Tower of London, those you could use, and the price is expensive, but you can look at them to have a lugh. You cannot take photos or videos of the girls, it is prohibited. By the red district there are coffee shops and normal bars to have a coffee or a drink. I recommend that if you go in winter, cover up because it is very cold, so bring thick clothes, gloves, scarves and comfy shoes so water doesn´t come in.

Book to book

Last December I spent a few days in Amsterdam, where bikes flood the streets and libraries come from where you least expect. It felt like it, a different European city in Europe, without complexes, without taboos, not what people say and the truth is that you notice upon arrival. But it has a narrow street that nobody wants to happen and for me was the Red Light District (Red light district) and it is expected that much more and I could only find girls who strut in front of a glass window made mode , trying to get your attention being like animals in a zoo. Amsterdam is the difference of tourism in Europe and marks the largest red light district all the differences and especially its lights, its people and its streets. I loved walking the streets at night, with their red and blue lights, giving the city an atmosphere different from what you can find in any other city. The most bizarre of all is the surprise of tourism, not to their windows, direntes all, if not surprised by the ease with which the Dutch company takes its liberties, bans elsewhere still do not quite understand, but it is beautiful see how it all does not matter, because after all is existing taboo can not be denied and must accept. Lights and people merge into one, without feeling fear being robbed or bullied for who should not, because that is the best of Amsterdam, anywhere, even certain neighborhoods branded undeserved fame, is a city safe and quiet for walking, except the thousands of bikes that are not respected including, but not everything can be perfect

Book to book

El Diciembre pasado estuve unos días en Amsterdam, donde las bicicletas inundan las calles y las librerías surgen de donde menos te puedes esperar. La sentí como es, una ciudad europea diferente de Europa, sin complejos, sin tabúes, sin qué dirán y la verdad es que se nota nada mas llegar.

Pero también tiene su calle estrecha por la que nadie quiere pasar y para mí fue el Red Light District (El Barrio Rojo) y es que de él esperaba mucho más y sólo pude encontrar chicas que se contonean delante de un cristal puesto a modo de escaparate, intentando llamar tu antención, como los animales de un zoo.

Amsterdam es la diferencia del turismo en Europa y su Barrio Rojo marca la mayor de todas las diferencias y sobre todo sus luces, su gente y sus calles.

Me encantó pasear por sus calles de noche, con sus luces rojas y azules, dándole a la ciudad una atmósfera diferente a la que puedes encontrar en cualquier otra ciudad.

Lo que más extraña de todo es la sorpresa del turismo, no ante sus escaparates, direntes a todos, si no la sorpresa por la naturalidad con que la sociedad holandesa toma sus libertades, prohibiciones en otros lugares que aún no comprendo bien, pero es hermoso ver como todo da igual, porque al fin y al cabo es un tabú existente que no se puede negar y debemos aceptar.

Luces y gente se funden en uno solo, sin la sensación de temor por ser robado o intimidado por quien no debe, porque eso es lo mejor de Amsterdam, que cualquier lugar, incluso ciertos barrios tildados de fama que no se merece, es una ciudad segura y tranquila para pasear, exceptuando sus miles de bicicletas que no se respetan ni entre ellas, pero no todo puede ser perfecto

A place has become a legend

Amsterdam has always had a reputation for unconventional city. One reason is the presence of the red light district, where prostitution is legal. Prostitutes are "Featured" in plain sight to be chosen by the customers. The district, however, is not degraded as you can imagine. It is located in a beautiful area in the medieval center, is crisscrossed by a canal, and at its center - almost ironically - is the oldest church in the city. Recommended, therefore, a walk along these streets, to satisfy the curiosity and soak up the atmosphere of this area. You will cross several signs winking (one of the most famous is that of the Red House, with a pink elephant wearing a green tie), which alternate with the famous "windows" and concept stores. On the main square there is a statue of Bell, built in 2007 in homage to the "sex workers" from around the world.

Un luogo entrato nella leggenda

Amsterdam ha da sempre la fama di città trasgressiva. Uno dei motivi è la presenza del quartiere a luci rosse, dove la prostituzione è legale. Le prostitute sono "in vetrina", in bella vista per poter essere scelte dai clienti. Il quartiere, però, non è affatto degradato come si può immaginare. Si trova in una bellissima zona nel centro medievale, è attraversato da uno splendido canale, e al suo centro - quasi a ironia della sorte - sorge la chiesa più antica della città. Raccomandata, quindi, una passeggiata lungo queste vie, per soddisfare la curiosità e per immergersi nell'atmosfera di questa zona. Ci si imbatterà in svariate insegne ammiccanti (una delle più famose è quella della Casa Rosso, con un elefante rosa che indossa una cravatta verde), che si alternano alle famose "vetrine" e a negozi a tema. Sulla piazza principale, c'è la statua di Bell, costruita nel 2007 in omaggio ai "lavoratori dell'industria del sesso" di tutto il mondo.

We arrived at about 5 pm, it was dark...

We arrived at about 5 pm, it was dark but almost no people. I guess in other season is packed, but I was a little disappointed, not what I expected, I guess something spectacular. Many red light and then the girls in cabins, with just clothes, some very young and others ... For retirement. In my haste I did look at them, it seems silly, but it was a rather strange situation. In an alley we find a series of windows with a "girls" spectacular waist up because then looked at the crotch and that woman had little, ha, ha, ha. And then there are the "virgin" swans floating in the channels between the reflections of neon lights. We come to "the house of condoms" and we laughed a lot, the window is great and you can buy sample into at least next to us was a guy dressed all saying: One box of this page, three boxes which page ... Then there are the exhibitors, shapes, flavors ... We bought a few that seemed lollipops and the girl at the cash we gave a tirade that we were stunned. I really seemed to understand "not tested" and asked the girl "not worth for sex?" and she smiled from ear to ear, said "it does not". It was hilarious. Not all are "joke", most are perfectly valid, but tiny price: 10 € the unit. I leave a little video to give you an idea. By the way, is totally forbidden to record and photograph the girls.

Llegamos a eso de las 5 de la tarde, ya era de noche pero casi no había gente. Supongo que en otra época del año estará a rebosar, pero a mi me decepcionó un poco, no se lo que me esperaba, supongo que algo espectacular.
Mucha luz roja y luego las chicas en las cabinas, con apenas ropa, algunas jovencísimas y otras... Pues para jubilarse. A mi me daba apuro mirarlas, parece una tontería, pero era una situación un tanto extraña. En una callejuela nos encontramos con una serie de escaparates con unas "chicas" espectaculares de la cintura para arriba, porque luego mirabas la entrepierna y eso de mujer tenía poco, ja,ja,ja.
Y luego están los "virginales" cisnes, flotando en los canales entre los reflejos de las luces de neón.
Nos acercamos hasta "la casa de los condones" y nos reímos un montón, el escaparate es buenísimo y dentro puedes comprar por muestrario, al menos al lado nuestro había un tipo todo trajeado diciendo: Una caja de la página tal, tres cajas de la página cual,... Luego están los expositores, las formas, los sabores... Compramos unos que parecían piruletas y la chica de la caja nos soltó una parrafada que nos quedamos alelados. A mi me pareció entender "no tested" y le pregunté a la chica "¿que no valen para practicar sexo?" y ella con una sonrisa de oreja a oreja dijo "pues no". Fue muy gracioso. No todos son de "coña", la mayoría son perfectamente válidos, pero menudos precios: 10 € la unidad.
Os dejo un pequeño vídeo para que os hagáis una idea.
Por cierto, está totalmente prohibido grabar y fotografiar a las chicas.

Well, out of decency for women who work there, no photos showcases here ... By day, it's still pretty soft, and very nice: It's called the Venice of the North, and it is one of the most popular "romantic" destinations ... But the city of Amsterdam has this look of "Sin City" with his daughters joys, live mannequins in the window, its coffee shops and all conceivable drugs ... The Red Light District at night looks like a giant sex shop. To see because part of Amsterdam, but I know that some, especially some that does not necessarily please ... It is in this area that you will find museums Sex and Eroticism of hashish and marijuana.

Bon, par décence pour les femmes qui y travaillent, pas de photos des vitrines ici... De jour, c'est encore assez soft, et surtout très joli : On l'appelle la Venise du Nord, et c'est une des destinations "romantiques" les plus courues... Mais la ville d'Amsterdam a cette allure de "ville des péchés", avec ses filles de joies, ses mannequins vivants en vitrine, ses coffee shops et toutes les drogues possibles et imaginables... Le Quartier Rouge, de nuit, ressemble à un gigantesque sex shop. À voir parce que faisant partie d'Amsterdam, mais je sais qu'à certains et surtout certaines ça ne plaît pas forcément... C'est aussi dans ce quartier que vous trouverez les musées du Sexe et de l'Érotisme, du Haschisch et de la Marijuana.

Behind the windows ...

As well as coffee shops, gouda and canals, the red light district of Amsterdam is a staple of the city. Under living day to evening, this "paradise of cheap sex" imposes certain rules tourist. No picture or movie showcases. So we go in front, more amused than fascinated with a sense of pity for these girls forced to sell their bodies to survive after having exhibited such mannequins in a store. The area, apart from its reputation, is also very good to the network of canals and tags on which stumbles on a street corner.

Derrière les vitrines...

Au même titre que les coffee-shops, le gouda et les canaux, le quartier rouge d'Amsterdam est un incontournable de la ville. Moins vivant en journée qu'en soirée, ce "paradis du sexe pas cher" impose certaines règles au touriste. Pas de photo ni de film des vitrines. Nous passons donc juste devant, plus amusées que fascinées, avec un certain sentiment de pitié pour ces filles obligées de vendre leur corps pour survivre après l'avoir exhibé tels des mannequins dans un magasin. Le quartier, hormis sa réputation, est également très beau pour les canaux qui le traversent et les tags sur lesquels on tombe par hasard au coin d'une rue.

THE red light district is truly a worship place, known for his eccentric side. There is absolutely everything. This is probably the reason why this part of Amsterdam is also frequented by locals and also by tourists. This is really the heart of the city, what comes to Amsterdam. The narrow streets of the neighborhood as well as the channels give the area a relaxing and quiet side.

LE quartier rouge est véritablement un lieu culte, reconnu pour son coté excentrique. On y trouve absolument tout. C'est sans doute la raison pour laquelle ce coin d'Amsterdam est aussi fréquenté par les habitants et également par les touristes. C'est réellement le coeur de la ville, ce qu'on vient voir à Amsterdam. Les petites ruelles du quartier ainsi que les canaux donnent au quartier un coté reposant et tranquille.

Besides being places that most attracts our attention, for having openly a service like that is, in my opinion also it has its share of absurdity. Midweek is not busy, however, during the weekend is full of people, in their majority men and can get to be a bit 'sinister'. However, be sure to visit, walk through these streets is very curious.

A parte de ser de los lugares que más nos llama la atención, por tener de forma abierta un servicio como el que es, a mi parecer también tiene su parte de esperpento.

Entre semana no está muy concurrido, sin embargo, durante el fin de semana se llena de gente, en su mayoría hombres y puede llegar a resultar un poco 'siniestro'.

No obstante, no dejes de visitarlo, pasear por estas calles es muy curioso.

Red light district

The Red Light District is one of the most touristic areas of the city. Amsterdam is known for being a city where the boundaries are wider than in other European cities, red or red light district area is proof with prositutées dancing in the windows lit red, coffee shops, etc. ... The red light district is a lively and fun to discover the night even though sometimes murky atmosphere settles in a few streets sometimes.

Quartier rouge

Le quartier rouge est l'un des quartiers les plus touristiques de la ville. Amsterdam est connue pour être une ville où les limites sont plus larges que dans les autres villes d'Europe, le quartier rouge ou red light district en est la preuve avec les prositutées qui dansent dans les vitrines éclairées de rouge, les coffee shops,etc... Le quartier rouge est un quartier vivant, et sympa à découvrir la nuit même si une ambiance parfois glauque s'installe dans quelques rues parfois.

Must be seen

I think going to the Red Light District of Amsterdam is best to tell you about it. Today I share a photo of the day, I had the opportunity to view the night that has more charm. People do anything to provide his services gracefully. There are also several museums about sex throughout this area. Between tastes and colors for everyone right?
