During the Covid-19 pandemic there are limiting rules for the Red Light District, as well as for gathering in groups. This has consequences for the tours we offer.
At this moment only the shops and terraces of the bars are allowed to be open. All the windows and erotic entertainment are closed at the moment, which means there isn't much activity in the area. The terraces also have to close down at 18:00, which means after that time the Red Light District is almost completely abandoned.
Also there are rules regarding the maximum group size outdoors. These rules state that only 2 people are allowed to come together outside. This would mean we would only be allowed to do tours with 1 person. Since by far most of our bookings are for 2 people or more, and because there isn't much open in the area, we have decided there will be no tours until more rules will be lifted.
From May 19th 2021
From the 19th of May terraces are allowed to stay open until 20:00. Also the sex workers are allowed to go back to work again. This means the windows in the Red Light District will open again. It's unclear however if the erotic entertainment will open up at this time, considering there are other rules for theaters and maximum group size for indoor places.
The number of people that are allowed to meet together outside however is still only 2 people. This means we would still only be allowed to do a tour with 1 person. For this reason we have decided there will be no tours until more rules will be lifted.
From June 9th 2021
From the 9th of June the maximum group size outdoors goes to 4 people. This means we would be allowed to do tours with maximum 3 people. Because however it is unclear if terraces are allowed to stay open longer than after 20:00, for now we will presume terraces will still have to close down at 20:00.
For this reason we will only provide tours at 17:00 and 19:00 with a maximum of 3 people. Do keep in mind that not everything in the Red Light District will be open again, like the erotic entertainment.
From June 16th 2021
From the 16th of June the maximum group size outdoors will be expanded to 6 people. This means we will be allowed again to do our tours with 4 people. It's unclear for now until what times terraces will be allowed to open, but we expect this will be until after 20:00.
This means all tours of 17:00, 19:00 and 21:00 in the Red Light District will be possible again. Do keep in mind that not everything in the Red Light District might be open again, like the erotic entertainment.
