Amsterdam Red Light District Prices

In an interview with the Guardian Newspaper, a prostitution customer in the red light district of Amsterdam stated that he pays $68 (€50) to have sex in a single session with prostitutes who advertise their services through windows.

In addition, a reader of Havocscope submitted information in 2013 that stated it costs $67 to $101 for a 20 minuet session having sex with a prostitute in Amsterdam’s red light district.

The prostitution industry is legal in Amsterdam. According to legal regulations, building owners are able to charge $165 to $206 (€120 to €150) to the prostitutes for each shift that they work. Thus, a prostitute much service at least 3 customers in order to cover the cost of renting the window.

There are between 6,000 to 8,000 prostitutes providing sex in Amsterdam.
