I am against any zoo's but I was forced to go there by my friends, and never again. Enclosures are really small, looks like nobody wants to invest any money to provide these poor animals with decent living conditions... Really, really sad and depressing place.

We had a great afternoon at the zoo, the buildings are superb. However be warned that it is an old zoo and some animal enclosures are far too small for the animals ( the most shockingly small enclosure was that of the lions). We loved the butterfly world, the aquarium was great as well. I prefer zoos where aninals have... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Van Gogh Museum. It was easy to get a ticket to enter and explore the three level museum. No pictures may be taken while inside; the museum pages remove your camera from your belonging while visiting the museum. Great detail is given to preserve the integrity of Vincent Van Gogh's Art Work. The gift shop has many... More

We showed up at the appointed time and place March 24 and were told that Zoom is no longer doing tours - that they stopped in December. Whether that's simply outside of summer season or at all, I'm not sure. But, it certainly was a disappointment when I'd specifically checked their website right before departing to get the correct time... More

Having done several excellent walking tours in London, we were delighted to find this one in Amsterdam. We enjoy learning about the history and places of interest, and find it an excellent way of getting acquainted with our surroundings. Other companies seemed to offer walking tours that concentrate solely on the Red Light District. We chose Zoom Amsterdam because the... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
