Amsterdam - Medieval Centre & Red Light District (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

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
  • maps
  • ogling the chandeliered opulence and taking a Dutch history lesson in the Royal Palace
  • transport
  • 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.
