A Shortwalk through Amsterdam

Top 5+1 Attractions in Amsterdam

Indisputably one of the most desired and visited cities in Europe.

This city breathes canals, romantic scenes walking through the bridges side by side with the narrow houses, at same time you feel like in a small enchanted place since the city is pretty much walk-able and “bike-able” everywhere.

We recommend this tour, if you are just passing by, first time visiting in a short trip or you have only 1 day and want to make the most out of it.

Red Light District

The red-light district, a known place for many of us if you mention the word “Amsterdam”. This is a called pleasure district, where you can find a concentration of sexual workers, strip-clubs and adult theaters such as live sex shows. The term red-light district originates from the red lights that were used as a sign for brothels.

This area became very popular for all types of tourists that come to Amsterdam, and lately has become a bit overcrowded, so if you intend to make a quick visit here, make sure you respect the sex workers and most important, do not take any photos.
