Amsterdam, Holland: Be Aware Of After-Dark Dangers PDF Print E-mail


In daylight, the Dutch capital is a vibrant, friendly, safe and attractive destination. Unfortunately, after the sun sets, like too many world cities today, danger roams the streets. With its famous Red Light district and infamous legal drug culture, night time Amsterdam can be hazardous to tourists.

If your senior travel plans include being in the city after dark, take sensible steps to protect yourself from potential danger. Go with at least one physically-fit companion, preferably with a tour group. Walk on well-lighted, busy sidewalks. If you hear or see a noisy group of people, especially an organized street demonstration, get to a safe place quickly.
