My husband and I went on our honeymoon backpacking trip. The "experience" is more a reference to the fact that this is not a functioning brewery anymore, and has been converted into a museum/attraction based on the company, brand and beer. That being said, it is fun and informative. They've chosen fun and interactive ways to express the process of... More

Really nicely put together museum/tour of Heineken and all it's history. You get a small beer to learn how to properly drink a Heineken and if you answer the questions - you'll get another one! There are also two beers given at the end, where you can drink them in a club-like atmosphere (the music was a bit loud, but... More

Well worth a visit. Once inside you experience the changing face of Heineken. Still a family company. Lots of demonstrations and interactive areas. We got a bottle with our names on it and also enjoyed great hopitality in the bar area. Some great stuff in the shop too.

I'm not a beer drinker. However, I was amazed with the Heneiken Experiences Tour. Basically, the tour covered the History/ Founder of Heneiken, what is main ingredients making Heneiken Beer and the process on how to make the beer. Beside that, you wil also get 2 free beers and another beer for tasting. At the end of the tour, there... More

Tour is an interactive exhibit with some staff giving explanations of the brewing process. They give you 3 beers in total. Fun way to spend an afternoon.

So glad we did this, as was considering not to as i don't like beer. Abit slow to start with but then it gets interactive with a simulator, beer tasting and pouring and loads of little things to do around the brewery. You can personalise your own Heineken bottles and then collect them at the end. On your wrist band... More

My sister and I visited the experience on our girls trip. Since we were doing Amsterdam in only one day, we probably moved faster through it than we would have liked. Lots of cool old brewing equipment, tons of friendly staff doing various presentations. And of course, there's beer included in the experience. As far as I could tell, the... More

We went to the Heineken experience not expecting much but it was amazing and a must do if you are in Amsterdam! We got our tickets from the tickets and tourist shop in the street and saves 2 euro each plus skipped the line to get in. It's not a typical historical tour, it's interactive, creative and so much to... More

This is a lame self guided 'tour' where you're just herded thorough various displays and video shows with the promise of two 'free' beers at the end. For 18 euro, you're better off having a real Heineken experience in a local bar or cafe overlooking an Amsterdam canal.
