The Oudekennissteeg (en=’old-acquaintancealley’),  is a alley between the Oudezijds Achterburgwal and the Oudezijds Voorburgwal.

If you walk in you from the Old Church side at your right hand site is Café ‘Pleinzicht’ (‘Squareview’) a typical Amsterdam brown-bar where locals drink their beer or ‘Jonkie’ (young gin).
In the alley are app. 10 windows filled with a variety of sexworkers.
At the end, is at the left hand side a sexshop, Star Shop. All the shops at the main district closes at 22:00 h. due a local regulation. Bars & theaters will be open till 02:00 , at 01:00 it’s are not allowed to enter a bar anymore.

You can go at the end left or right onto the Oudezijds Achterburgwal to continue the sightseeing of ‘de Walletjes’.
