Amsterdam Coffeeshops Map, Photos & information            

(in and around the red light districts)               

The interactive map below shows all 76 coffeeshops in and around Amsterdam's two biggest red light districts. Mouse-over any to see a thumbnail photo or click to see a high resolution version along with information and sometimes inside views. The same (clickable) photos are also listed below the map.
Coffeeshops along with the red light windows are one of the main reasons people visit Amsterdam. Both are very much part of Dutch culture and history but both also have an uncomfortable relationship with the authorities. Coffeeshops sit on the very edge of what is legal and tolerated regarding drugs in Holland. Many have been closed down when owners have broken the strict rules which control them and recently there have also been closures due to Project 1012 and new laws regarding the proximately of coffeeshops to schools. Many coffeeshops in Holland no longer serve foreign tourists though at time of writing they still do in Amsterdam.
Apart from the obvious, coffeeshops typically sell soft drinks, snacks and sometimes full meals. Since April 2007 they are not permitted to sell alcohol but many get around this by having a bar next door or on a different floor or simply flouting the law.
Please note that this is a family friendly website and  there are no reviews or information about what is commonly purchased in these places. No website about Amsterdam however would be complete without a brief mention at least of Amsterdam's famous coffeeshops.
George. 2015 update: Some of these shops have now closed so the map is not 100% accurate.


Slowly mouse-over any coffeeshop name to see a thumbnail below. Left clicking will take you to a page containing a high resolution version, information and sometimes additional rare inside pictures. Faces have been blanked out for privacy reasons. The Old Church coffeeshop has been left out since it will soon seize trading.
