This is a legal profession in Amsterdam and many prostitutes belong to a union.The window spots for working girls are decreasing slowly all the time.
There are living locals in this area and the areas is full of normal tourists. DO NOT try to take photos of prostitutes even from the streets, or you might lose your camera without any warning!
Very pleasant little pedestrian street, few people around, but much less hookers, mainly middle aged plump ones some ugly some very sexy, a few good looking ones. The Red Light District consists of several canals, and the side streets between them, south of Central Station and east of Damrak.
Some of the international escorts also travel to Amsterdam and usually they will take clients at hotels in the Amsterdam centre, near Red-light district.
In the red-light district of Amsterdam you’ll see scores of working girls flirting with people from behind their red-light windows.
There are actually three such districts in Amsterdam, but the one simply referred to as the Red Light District is the largest and world famous one in the historic part of town just across from Central Station. A large number of Amsterdam's estimated 7,000 sex workers are not Dutch nationals.
Around 80 percent of the city's sex workers are from Eastern Europe.
Known as 'De Wallen' (the quays) in Dutch, because the canals were once part of the city defenses (walls and moats).
Prostitution itself is limited to certain streets, mainly side streets and alleys, but the district is considered to include the canals, and some adjoining streets (such as Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk).
Anyway, there are still lots of window girls working in these red-light areas, especially in De Wallen.
From lots of personal journeys through the area I can tell you that many of these girls look like Playboy Centerfolds from a distance and most of those still look hot as hell when you get a bit closer.
If we look few years back, there were much more windows where prostitutes used to work.
