The Red Light District was established in 1894 with a Fourteenth century design. Locally known as DeWallen, it is situated in the heart of the city. It is the largest red-light district in Amsterdam. The area comprises of 6,500 square meters. The District has altogether three hundred and one houses, which are built in a straight line. The area consists of numerous adult shops, clubs, theaters, peep shows and musadesigneum. Since the use of marijuana is a legal one (up to certain limits), the Cannabis museum makes the tourists euphoric. A lot of coffee shops are there for refreshment and is bordered by a well-equipped China Town. The specialty of the place is Kamers. This is formed together with the De Wallen and the prostitution areas of Singlebied and Ruysdaelkade. The architectural attractions of the Red Light District are the ancient buildings, museums and canals. The area will be crowded with visitors and the tourists almost all the time. DeWallen is a top priority destination for the tourists who never mind the religious or ethical reasons to avoid these types of places.
