Owner description: This area in the oldest part of Amsterdam is known for the red neon windows that display barely-dressed prostitutes advertising their services; it's all perfectly acceptable as long as it stays inside this designated area of the city.

any other city and the location of the working girls is someplace that you;d not want to be. this however is a great tourist trap, its very touristy and feels very safe, and even clean - especially in the context of is usually associated with this type of trade.
there were multiple tour groups walking through and all types of people, men/women, young/old, etc... although you might have to answer some questions if you took a younger child through the area.
the girls are in the windows, just like advertised, wearing bikinis or loungerie, and they dont come out onto the streeet, but as a single guy walking by, i would get the nods, waves and winks to try and entice my bussiness.
the whole area takes less than 5 min to walk through and if you are in amsterdam you should see it, even if you are opposed to the practice at hand, it is a sight to see.

Took a walk here at night and i was surprised that there was all sorts of people and we felt very comfortable. I was worried about the safety but that is not an issue at all. Its sure worth a visit when in town but for adults only.

You really have to take a wander through this district day or night, some interesting sights, people and eating places. You haven't done Amsterdam till you visit this area.

The area was a bit dirty and dishevelled, but very interesting and a real eye opener, but amongst this, there were some nice little shops and coffee bars!
