Fantastic selection of Dutch beers, a great atmosphere within a traditional setting, located very close to the city centre and old town. The barman was very helpful and friendly - will definitely return here if I come back to Amsterdam!

What a cool little place this is! Old school and cozy inside, loads of beers to choose from and a superb barman to take care of you. Definitely worth a stop when passing. It also had a really nice cherry beer to keep my wife happy!

We were clued into this place by our program director on a river cruise. I didn't count but there had to be more than 500'religious statutes throughout the building. What makes any Belgian bar great is their beers and Elfde Gebod no exception. A nice surprise was their own beer which was dark, smooth and delicious. If you can get... More

If you want to relax in a quaint bar with great beer and mellow music then this is the bar for you. In the noisy and chaotic atmosphere of the red light district this is a perfect oasis. As if that wasn't enough there is a great selection of beers and the barman is very friendly and welcoming.

On our latest holiday to Amsterdam in January we were on the vibrant and busy street ZEEDIJK ,we had just been to the wonderful pub IN T'AEPJEN and as we were in the mood for some classic Belgium beer's we decided to...

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.
