Den Haag red light district, Netherlands / Holland

                     Den Haag Red Light Districts

Den Haag, also called Gravenhage and The Hague is known the world over for it's high profile court cases. It has more than 150 international organisations including the International Court of Justice. Far more interesting than that though is it's two red light districts. The better known and more upmarket one lies on the streets of Geleenstraat and Hunsestraat about 500m north east of the Den Haag Holland Spoor (HS) railway station.
Around 700m north west of the station is the second on Doubletstraat. There used to be a third very small district on Poeldijkstraat but this was closed down around 1999 due to crime and general nuisance.

Geleenstraat & Hunsestraat
This is Den Haag's main red light district. It consists of approximately 152 red light windows. Apart from these there is little else associated with the adult industry and is not an area visited by many tourists. Unlike Amsterdam you will not see stag parties or tour groups. Instead you will mostly see lone Dutch men browsing the windows. It gets quite busy at night but has a strange feel to it with no one really speaking to or making eye contact with anyone else. It does however feel quite safe and I have never been approached by drug dealers or beggars here.

Doubletstraat
Below are photos of the second red light district situated on Doubletstraat. I can only describe the area as down market compared with Geleenstraat and Hunsestraat. I can't imagine many tourists going here and assume it's mainly used by locals even more so than the other area. I don't mind walking here during the day or early evening but the place has a distinct dodgy feel to it and probably best avoided late at night. There are far nicer red light districts than this in Europe. Although very compact it has a large number of windows / kamers. A map of which can be seen here (sorry, link is sometimes down, it's not mine). I would like to fully photograph it one day but the girls start early and the inside areas don't open until it is fairly busy.
