Should you hire a bodyguard in Amsterdam? In other words, is the city safe? Is it even safe at night? These are three questions that can only be answered subjectively.

The city is famous for the many coffee shops where soft drugs are sold and the red light district, where prostitution is legal. The police authorities fight a difficult war on hard drugs in Amsterdam, but so does the Rotterdam harbour police against organized crime. The average Dutch, and there are millions of them, are not involved.

The Dutch capital ranks among the safest in the world. However, criteria such as digital security (safe cyber infrastructure) and health security (green areas and parks) are included in this index. In the Netherlands, the capital is considered the most dangerous city in the nation.

Generally, travelling to and moving around in Amsterdam for business or pleasure is safe. For both Dutch citizens and foreigners. Still, under certain circumstances, it is wise to hire professionals who know how to keep you safe. For instance, when you need to keep a low profile.


Your reasons for hiring a bodyguard, close protection officer or security driver depends on many factors. We understand that your purpose to stay in Amsterdam may not be merely in the capacity of a tourist. Your business and/or leisure goals may be diverse, change constantly or have not yet been definitely planned. An uncertain schedule can cause stress in a foreign city. Asking for advice from local professionals will reduce your worries.

Another reason could be that you prefer to avoid publicity or lie low for certain threats. Whether you are a famous person, an influential businessman, or a UHNWI, various forms of protection can make your stay unforgettable.

Close protection services

For the duration of an outing or the full length of your stay, a bodyguard can safely move you through crowds or join you on a private tour through one of the world-famous museums. Alternatively, if you do not want to attract too much attention to your presence, consider covert executive protection. This way, you and your family will have more freedom of movement. In case of an emergency, the covert protection officers step up and immediately provide overt close protection. A security driver can transport you from A to B in the safest and most luxurious way possible.

Close protection services may include:
