Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 5pm (all in English!)
You can reserve your place in the tour ahead of time at the PIC, or just show up a few minutes before time at the PIC.
The Red Light District has been a special area of Amsterdam since the city’s earliest history. This mediaeval part of the city with remarkable buildings, centuries-old churches and the sex industry as the main attraction has a fascinating history, which you can learn all about during a walking tour with a guide who can tell you everything. Our aim? To help you better understand the sex industry in the Red Light District and a sex workers’ perspective to the area. And increase respect for sex workers.
The walking tour starts in the PIC on Enge Kerksteeg 3 (behind the Old Church) and lasts approximately 1.5 hour. Before or after the tour you can drink a coffee or tea at the PIC.
Price: 17,50 euro per person (cash payments only)
Did you know the PIC is a non-profit organisation? All our income is used to keep our centre open to sex workers and tourists and keep educating tourists, students, media, local politicians and others about sex work in the Red Light District.

Private tours, large groups and lectures:
If you are a group of colleagues, friends or students who would like to go on the walking tour together, you can book a tour beforehand for any day of the week.
There is also a possibility for groups (often students, teachers, of service providers) to do a talk/lecture about sex work without the tour. In that case we stay inside the PIC for 1 hour.
If you are planning to come to the Saturday tour with a group of people, it is advisable to email beforehand to avoid the group at 5 pm becoming too large.
For the possibilities and prices, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not take any photographs of window prostitutes (or in their vicinity) during the walking tour. Unfortunately, sex workers still experience high levels of stigma in society. Photographs represent a danger in that they may be seen by acquaintances or invade a sex worker’s privacy in other ways. Everyone should respect this.
