The Top 5 European Destinations (With Legal Prostitution)

Updated on August 19, 2009

I've been watching a lot of The Travel Channel lately, and every time I go through these phases, I feel the urge to get off my couch and see the world. So it usually starts with me sitting up, then moving one foot in front of the other, then walking across the room to my computer, where I sit down again. Then I look at places online, and I never find anything I can afford, so I go back to my couch where I lay down and fall asleep. But this time was different. I was looking around at different destinations, and I stumbled on some pretty surprising info about some pretty popular European Destinations.

5. Greece

Greece is home to some of the world's oldest and most beautiful architectural masterpieces, including The Parthenon and The Acropolis.  Both of which are located in Athens, one of the safest capital cities in the world.  Which means you don't have to be overly cautious when you're walking around at night. And while you're out and about, keep your eyes peeled for one of their 10 to 15,000 prostitutes. Because while Greece penalizes pimps and requires brothels to have permits, prostitutes are pretty well accepted. They even undergo regular health checks and pay social security. In fact, the Greek government recently revealed a plan to force prostitutes 55 and older into retirement, and provide them with medical and social benefits.

4. Belgium

When I think of Belgium, three things typically come to mind; beer, chocolate, and of course, waffles! Legal prostitution didn't even make the top ten. But almost every major city in Belgium has a red light district. Including, and especially Brussels. So whether you're enjoying old tourist favorites like The Peeing Boy statue, or checking out more recent attractions like the Atomium, you're bound to come across someone who's in the oldest profession in the world.

Which European Destination Would You Go To?

3. Ireland

If you ever make it out to The Emerald Isle, you might find yourself kissing more than The Blarney Stone. But unlike much of Europe's prostitution, Ireland's is much more organized. Because while prostitution itself is legal, many of the things associated with it aren't, such as; pimping, soliciting, and running a brothel. So what are the Celtic beauties to do? Why start escort services from their homes, of course! These escort services are prevalent and tolerated throughout Ireland. So you don't have to go on an old, genuine Irish pub tour to get some Celtic TLC. But why wouldn't you?

The London Tower Bridge in London, England

2. England

London has some of the most famous attractions in Europe, including The Big Ben, The Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace. But guess what else they've got? That's right, prostitutes. And much like Ireland, prostitution itself is legal throughout London and Wales, as long as the prostitute is 18 or older. Also like Ireland, there's no pimping and no brothels. But if you get bored of some of the world's best shopping, fashion, and tourist destinations, just step into a "telephone boof" and call one of the cards on the wall.


1. Germany

Germans aren't exactly renowned for being reserved. And their stance on prostitution is no exception. Unlike many of their European counterparts, prostitution in Germany is legal and widespread. Prostitutes solicit sex from anywhere to bars (where the business is usually conducted in a connected building) to Eros Centers (houses or streets where prostitutes can rent rooms for the day) to Saunas. Even street prostitution is legal in Germany. It's actually very well controlled and organized by the German pimps. Germany has a long history of prostitution, dating all the way back to the 1200s, and it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. So the next time you're over there, hop off the Audubon and take a real ride.

      In every country there is red light area!! In every country there is prostitute - even a little boy can say where the red light area is !!

      Few days back a group of prostitute appeared in the honorable court and ask for a place in their area where they can observed their festival!! state government opposed - as suggested by the local Police station. However, honorable court give a verdict in favour of those prostitute and they observed their festival for the first time in the city !! Now I wanted to know from the honourable court and from the government - THEN WHY THE PROSTITUTION is not ligalised ?? then the local goons - police - and political party cannot used them as a slave.

      Prostitution is not "legal" in the UK or Ireland... only decriminalized. (street prostitution, brothels, pimping, trafficking, underage prostitution, and soliciting is strictly prohibited).

      And yes, there are plans to ban prostitution in the Netherlands (and across Europe) around 2016. Europe is becoming very conservative.

      Meanwhile, many states in America are legalizing prostitution such as Nevada, Detroit, and California. Check out the Bunny Ranch in Nevada

      Is it legal? Most of the brothels in Sydney are legal so we didn't have problems. I think there are some places where brothels are legal in Europe. I just want to know the exact places.

      Irish prostitution is not legal. Its just not called 'prostitution' in the law but instead is "any person who lives of immoral earnings" and as prostitution is selling sex then that's that.

      Also, for some strange reason its only a brothel if theres more than 2 girls working and neither live there. Surely one of the most overly complicated pieces of law man ever made.

      I have had couple of visit in Reeperbahn in Germany, which is a great place to drink in the pubs and a has sex clubs and small red light district, but Amsterdam is a much more interesting place if you are looking for sex (in West Europe of Course).

      There are so many brothels in Germany. It's amazing, because Germany is a rich country and media makes people believe prostitution is a problem of poor countries. fact is, people want to work in brothels because it's easy work and earns in good money. My bookmarks:

      Hahaha. Thanks, Fran. You know, I looked at Holland actually, and Amsterdam's talking about getting rid of their red light district. I guess their mayor said he's sick of his city being infamous for drugs and sex. But as far as I know, it's still a hot spot for sin. As for me, I don't think I'll be heading to Mustang Ranch anytime soon. Prostitution's not really my forte. lol. Thanks for the comment though. Glad you liked it.

      Good article, but ya really gotta add Holland--yery funky yet interesting windowed red-light district, & right around the corner from the hash bars, so very enlightening....

      Then, in the good ole' USofA you have the (in)famous Mustang Ranch in Nevada. If you save your pennies you might just catch a SoWest flight from Michigan....Just a thought, cowboy!
