Red Light scavenger hunt

Nobody can deny that Amsterdam is colourful; when you think of the old town you probably see the unique canals, the busy shopping streets and the red glow of the Red Light District in front of you. The colourful scavenger hunt takes you on a discovery tour through this pleasant part of Amsterdam. What do you know about the Zeedijk, The famous Chinatown or the Red Light District? After this scavenger hunt you know much more about Amsterdam! We consider this scavenger hunt suitable for children from 14 years old, so the tour is also suitable for high school students or university students to introduce them to this special neighborhood during a school trip to Amsterdam.

Route of the scavenger hunt

The walking route passes the Nieuwmarkt, Chinatown and the Red Light District. During the hunt, topics such as the versatility of Amsterdam, the history of the old town, crime, prostitution and drug trafficking are discussed. The route runs in a circle; where you start you also end. That is why you can decide where you want to start on the route yourself. The scavenger hunt is an informal tour through the heart of Amsterdam and is often booked for social visits to Amsterdam such as friend and family activities, informal staff meetings or bachelor parties. We also offer the scavenger hunt in Dutch.

The scavenger hunt consists of a steady folder, 26 stop points with text and colour photos and an answer form. The laminated map shows the walking route and the stopping points.
