Setting out with an Old Detective in Amsterdam

Details about this event

Picture yourself being immersed in the Amsterdam underworld. You can, with the Setting out with an Old Detective arrangement of Mokum Events.

Exciting stories are told by a former policeofficer stationed at the Warmoesstraat precinct.

Experience the chilling spots where the most notorious murders took place and get to know the backgrounds of Haring Arie, Frits van de Wereld and of course Klaas 'the minister' Bruinsma.

The tour takes you to the Wallen (Red-light district) and Chinatown. Along the way you will of course visit the former policestation Warmoesstraat, you will hear about the murder on 'magere' (skinny) Josje and you will see where the Chinese maffia still gambles. You will walk over the Zeedijk, one of the most notorious 'drugs streets' in the seventies and eighties. You will discover in detail what really happened here.

Although your guide isn't active in this neighbourhood anymore, he does come here every day and still knows the names of most residents. The sheltercentre for junkies, the nuns in the Warmoesstraat, the queens in the Cockring. In short: Amsterdam like you have never seen before!

  • Professional guide (a real A'dam resident with years of experience)
  • Can be booked for the day and time you prefer!

You can book this arrangement with fewer participants than stated on this page, if you are willing to pay for the required number!
