With this combination, you decide what you do and when you do it. Save time and money with this combination ticket.

The secrets of the Red Light District

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the sex industry? Or what it’s like to sit behind the district’s famed windows as people walk past? Go behind the scenes at Red Light Secrets, otherwise known as the Museum of Prostitution. Located in a 400-year-old canal house and former brothel, Red Light Secrets shows you on an interactive and compassionate look at the life of prostitutes.

The Red Light District in Amsterdam is the home of the city's sex industry, locally known as De Wallen. The area is known for its narrow streets, sex shops, strip clubs and of course window prostitution, all are legal in the Netherlands.

Red Light Secrets is immersive and informative. See the inside of a prostitute's room and listen to their stories to find the answers to questions, such as who chooses to do this work? And why? How much money do they make? What types of people visit a window prostitute? And what happens when the curtains close?

Soak up the sights on an Amsterdam canal cruise

An Amsterdam canal cruise is the perfect addition to a trip to Red Light Secrets. During the hour-long cruise, you’ll discover the beautiful canal belt of the ‘Venice of the North.' The Amsterdam canal cruise is truly one of Amsterdam’s highlights, it’s no wonder that the 100km-long canal belt is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Marvel at the three most famous canals of the city, the Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, and Herengracht, alongside which wealthy spice merchants constructed grand houses during the Dutch Golden Age. The Amsterdam canal cruise is significantly enriched by an audio guide, in 19 languages, packed with fascinating information about the city's history.
