Prostitution Information Center (PIC), Amsterdam

#187 of 312 in Tours in Amsterdam
The Prostitution Information Centre (PIC, Dutch: Prostitutie Informatie Centrum) is located in the heart of Amsterdam in the red light district, near Amsterdam's Old Church. The PIC serves as an educational centre and resource for providing Amsterdam's visitors with information and advice about prostitution.
The practice of prostitution in the Netherlands was legalised nationally in October 2000. However, Amsterdam has long had a tolerant attitude towards prostitution, coupled with clear regulations that have been in force for many decades. Though prostitution is legal in Amsterdam, there is still a considerable amount of misunderstanding about it. The PIC's objective is to clear up some of that misunderstanding by providing visitors with accurate information regarding prostitution.

  • Amazing tour guide, and great tour! Learned a great deal - super informative and enlightening. I really hope these tours continue so that the stigma and discrimination surrounding sex work diminishes. Highly recommended tour :).
  • Really informative, interesting and heartfelt tour of the red light district. Fascinating to learn about the laws and lives of sex workers from a sex worker. Highlight of our trip.
