Amsterdam turns red: this is how it continues on De Wallen | Inland


Van Dijk manages erotic venues such as Casa Rosso, the Bananenbar and club, Theater 97, Hospitalbar, the Erotic Museum, Peepshow and Sexy Loo. Things will be closed for three weeks for the time being, says Van Dijk. Now that Amsterdam has been put on ‘red’ and the capital is one of the largest hotspots of contamination in Europe, it is urged to stay at home as much as possible and to limit social contacts. The huge number of corona infections also means fewer visitors. For example, hotels are largely empty and it is also significantly less busy in the Red Light District.

Nevertheless, the Amsterdam VVD is calling on mayor Femke Halsema to take further measures. If it were up to the liberals, the lights behind the windows will go out no later than 1 am, but preferably as early as midnight, to better spread the visitors who will come.

Crowded picture

Recreational visits to the red-light district are now not limited to the catering guidelines that apply to the Randstad. According to group chairman Marianne Poot, this must change quickly in the interests of public health. She submits questions to mayor Femke Halsema on Tuesday.

Van Dijk, also chairman of the employers’ association of the Red Light District, does not recognize the busy image himself. “It is becoming a haunted neighborhood again with more dealers on the street than visitors.”
