Great value for a couple of hours tour around Heineken Experience. Even if you are not a lager drinker, it is still interesting to learn about the origin of the Heineken Brewery. The bonus at the end is two glasses of Heineken lager!

This was a very nice experience all through. The staff are very friendly and nice and you get a quick lesson in how beer is made and go through the heineken history. My favorite part is when i got to be the bartender.

We were interested in the history of the beer and and how it is made so we thought why not visit. It was interesting but the history was a little short in its telling and the present more than adequate. The views from the top bar are great and certainly going to to enjoy a beer. All in all it...

Great way to pass an afternoon, even if you have no interest in beer. Interesting to find out the history of the company.

My expectations were not very high from this visit - what could be so fascinating about the making of beer? It turned out to be a fun experience that included passing information in a lively way, interactive demos, beer tasting (of course...) and some fun games that actually made us laugh. Spilling beer on my lap only made everything funnier.... More

It's a nice place to visit but not really a must-see if you're in Amsterdam. It's not much different nor more interesting than other breweries and you don't really see actual beer production, only props and other gimmicks. There is one of those video rooms with dynamic, moving platforms that simulate the action taking place on the screen but this... More

It was fun but really not 18 Euro a person fun. Most beer tours in the US are free. We did wait an hour to get our canal cruise, that did make up for the high price.

Heineken is a very good beer to begin with but here you get to see the entire process of brewing. There is a fun ride where you get to play the part of a beer bottle. An interesting film shows how the Heineken label was branded in order to become a world wide product. Would highly recommend this attraction as... More

We didn't expect much more than a factory tour, and were pleasantly surprised. The tour was well thought out, with a guide to everything you need to know about barley and hops in the beer production process. with an interactive movie featuring you as the brew! Lots of videos and pics which can be forwarded by email, and a great... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
