Rethinking the stereotypes Amsterdam is renowned for being a multifaceted city. Home to what is probably the world’s most talked-about Red Light District, not to mention its famous coffeeshops, it is easy to see why the Dutch capital is seen as such a beacon for freedom and tolerance. But any preconceptions you may have about the city’s more risqué reputation should be reconsidered. As the cultural attractions featured in the following pages demonstrate, there is far more to Amsterdam’s liberal attitude than the stereotypes suggest. TEXT: ANNA VILLELEGER  |  PHOTOS: NBTC
