The Oude Nieuwstraat (en= Old Newstreet) is the main attraction of the Singel District. This street is between the Korte Korsjespoortsteeg and the Lijnbaanssteeg (it runs parallel with the Singel & the Spuistraat). At the Lijnbaanssteeg is a small snackrestaurant, a hotel, a tobaccoshop, a jewellery- & accessoriesshop, a good take-away and a dry-cleanershop. At the corner of the Lijnbaanssteeg and the Spuistraat is a supermarket and a small bakery/takeaway
At the Oude Nieuwstraat and Lijnbaanssteeg you can walk safely because there is no traffic allowed.
The 22 windows at the Oude Nieuwstraat will remain open, the Major & alderman, who made the ‘regulations‘, are convinced now there is no underlying criminality here and no money-laundering.
In this street is a variety of sexworkers from young to mature and of all ethnicity.
The sexworkers are very friendly here, you can have a little talk with them, even without ‘being serviced’!
This district stay’s open almost all night but the number of sexworkers will reduce as the clock ticks on.
Don’t forget to visit Fabrique des Lumières at the Westergas to see the most wonderful digital art impressions, brought to life by light, projection & music.
