The local Amsterdam Red Light District in Amsterdam South
Amsterdam’s other red light district
The Red Light Street for locals not tourists
One of the common myths put about by local residents of Amsterdam is that the red light district is used mainly by tourists. While this might be true for the famous location in the center of the city, the Ruysdaelkade red light district is mainly frequented by locals. Having said that, now that Airbnb has enriched Amsterdam by bringing tourists to neighborhoods that they wouldn’t have normally visited this may no longer be the case.
If you’re looking to see a smaller, more authentic red light district during your stay in Amsterdam that isn’t overrun with tourists then pay a visit to the Ruysdaelkade. Please remember that taking photos or selfies is strictly forbidden in the red light areas of town.
