The municipality of Amsterdam wants to close some of the windows in the Red Light District and open an erotic center on the outskirts of the city with prostitution, catering and other entertainment. Mayor Femke Halsema announced this in a letter to the city council on Friday. The mayor mentions places in Southeast, New West, South, North and East as possible locations.

The municipality opts for an erotic center instead of a prostitution hotel, with only sex work and a small café, because a number of interested market parties have a “clear preference” for a location that does not only involve prostitution. A preliminary sketch of the new erotic center shows that visitors walk through a ramp in the building past the windows, catering establishments and other entertainment. According to the mayor, this makes it easier to prevent ‘nuisance and unsafe situations’.
Amsterdam hopes with the plan to reduce the congestion in the Red Light District and improve the position of sex workers. In the erotic center, the sex workers are given a new workplace where there are more opportunities to combat ‘unwanted treatment and nuisance’. It is expected that it will take about 3.5 to ten years before the project can actually be realized.
The municipality announced last year that the area around the Red Light District had to be overhauled. Mayor Halsema then said that the situation had become untenable due to crowds and human trafficking.
