Been on this twice with different guides both so different and so amazing! Very friendly, funny, loads of knowledge and answer any questions you have. Take you all around Amsterdam and show you places/tell you things you'd never find on your own. 2.5 hours long but you can leave at any point, it's also free but most people give donations... More

Two friends and I did the free walking tour with Sam. The first thing he did was have us introduce ourselves to someone on the tour we didn't know. Then, throughout the tour, we had to check in and make sure our new friend was still with us. Wonderful! I will remember Oscar and Dan forever! Sam was passionate and... More

Our tour guide Tim was exactly the right height and one of the best tour guides I have ever had. It's... More

We did the walking tour with Axel & it was fantastic, one of the best city walking tours we have done in Europe. Axel was fun & informative, very engaging with the group and the right height for a tour guide! We enjoyed every minute of the 3 hours. This is a great way to see Amsterdam and we would... More

Highly recommend this free tour. Our guide Axel was very knowledgeable and I definitely learnt more about Amsterdam this way compared to the hop on hop off bus tours we've done in other countries. The tour length was about 3 hours which was well paced and even scheduled in a break. Axel was the perfect height for a tour guide.... More

Me and one of my best friends have just come back from Amsterdam. I fell in love with the city from the start! Although we found our own way around on the first couple of days, we then decided to do the free walking tour from ClinkNoord. Our guide was Mark and it was the best tour I've been on!... More

Our guide Sam did a great and passionate job in introducing Amsterdam as the birthplace of liberalism and diversity. His Sandeman tour took us through the main highlights and history of The Netherlands and Amsterdam including the Red Light District, Canals, Jewish Quarter, etc. He also had plenty of tips of what and how to see Amsterdam. He was extremely... 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.
