Join this super fun and interesting Famous Twins Prostitutes Tour and meet Holland’s best known prostitutes in Amsterdam. Most Dutch know them as the “The Old Hookers” (or in Dutch: De Ouwe Hoeren). This is how the twins named themselves. Their real names are Martine & Louise Fokkens. These Dutch twin prostitutes are now 77 years old & have worked in Red Light District for 50 years! They started here in the 1960’s. Louise first and Martine followed two years later.
They’ve retired some years ago and would love to share their fascinating stories with you. During this tour, we’ll walk through the Red Light District, see where they have worked and explore all the best places in “De Wallen” together with world’s most famous twin prostitutes. Take a picture with them and ask them anything you like.
The Fokkens started off their careers in 1966, in their early twenties. They say that say that they enjoyed most of their working life in Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Through their work they met a lot of interesting and friendly men from all over the world. In The Netherlands these ladies are very famous because it’s quite unique that these identical twins have worked in prostitution for so long.
The Fokkens Twins even got their own documentary called Ouwehoeren (meaning: “Old Whores or Old Hookers”). The documentary tells their story and experiences. International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) described the documentary as follows:
“The twins tell amusing tales on how they came to be in this line of work, how they eventually went into business for themselves, and how relationships in the world of prostitution have changed over the years. Their stories are full of spicy details about their clientele, some of whom come from unexpected walks of life.”
We took a tour of the red light district and met the lovely twins “The Fokkens”….We met our guide on dam square and went into the red light district, stopped off in a few tourist spots, seen some of the girls working and had a history lesson from Elard, after this we went to the dolls museum which was strange but good fun. A few glasses of wine & a good natter plus photos with the twins we headed off to enjoy the rest of the night. Great if your looking for an activity for a hen party.
