Overview

Learn about its seven century-old history, how it went from being just a swamp to becoming the poshest neighborhood in the city, to then be abandoned by the richer Amsterdammers in the 17th Century and re-inhabited by sailors and hard laborers, both trades renown to enjoy the pleasures of the forbidden; the degradation and the legend of the neighborhood had begun. From then on pimps, prostitutes and a very exuberant black market took over the area. As early as the 19th Century it already started to attract tourists from all over the world who wanted to taste its fruits, relish in its exotic shows and haze in its opium dents. The 20th Century saw the toughest times for the area due to the heroin epidemic of the ’80s and ’90s. Nowadays, however, it is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city, with the Dutch authorities have been able to maintain the freedom whilst keeping the area out of the hands of criminals.

Explore the area and unveil all its secrets from past to new. Walk through the Old Church Square and learn of all the clever ways the church used in order to not lose its revenue.
