Only a few years ago, Antwerp's red light district or the Seamen's quarter was the place to go to see Russian sailors, have a drink in a Greek taberna or walk past the window prostitutes. But the streets were renovated and made car-free in 2005, the façades cleaned up and the stores renovated. Today there are only three streets where window prostitution is tolerated, i.e., Schipperstraat, Vingerlingstraat and Verversrui. In the centre of this upgraded neighbourhood, between Verversrui and Schipperstraat lies Villa Tinto. This is a former industrial building which was converted into a chic bordello. In fact Villa Tinto is the largest in its kind in Belgium. One hundred girls work, in shifts, 24/7. Villa Tinto bathes in a warm, red glow, an excellent idea by the well-known Flemish designers, Arne Quinze and Yves Milan, who designed the interior. The blue sign indicates that there is a small police station here. Above Villa Tinto is a penthouse with a doctor's practice and a Bed & Breakfast. Tourists should not feel uncomfortable here, as the red light district is actually one of the safest neighbourhoods in Antwerp.
