Amsterdam - Medieval Centre & Red Light District (Chapter)
This is the Medieval Centre & Red Light District chapter from Lonely Planet’s Amsterdam guidebook.
Amsterdam’s heart beats in its medieval core and the centuries-old Red Light District. The area is laced with atmospheric lanes, and 17th-century tasting rooms, brown cafés and hidden courtyards are the prizes for those who venture off the main drags.
- wandering through the Red Light District, which will make your jaw drop, even if near-naked women beckoning from backlit windows is the oldest Amsterdam cliché
- ogling the chandeliered opulence and taking a Dutch history lesson in the Royal Palace
- pushing open the door to the Begijnhof and beholding the hidden gardens and churches
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
