Good beer

Lovely beer but I would say that we was the youngest at 21 by at least 10 years. I would recommend it though it's a bit hard to find a seat so small groups recommended

Lots of beers to choose from but limited tables so if you need to sit down for a drink this may not be the place for you. Good service and good price!

Still the best bar by far, if you ask me. Great staff, great beers. My taste spots hit the roof every time. If you don't go here, then you haven't been to Amsterdam! Cheers!

A place famous for its vast collection of beers, and because it was one of the venue's for Michael Jackson (no) to record his Beerhunter TV series. They've been around for over 25 years and boast 18 taps, with regular guest appearances of casks. The 18 fixed taps have but three beers always on: the rest rotates. You'll find Dutch... More

Not only will you drink great beers (la trappe quadrupel is my favourite). But you will meet some great people from all over the world. Highly recommend.

if you're into beer don't miss this place , it just the best . The inn is tucked away just off Dam Square and not that easy to find. The barman was most helpful and very knowledgeable about the myriad beers on offer.The beer we decided on was delicious and would have loved another pint but we had booked a... More

Worth seeking out this was recommended by our hotel concierge and suffice to say whilst we'd intended to have a couple of beers before dining we didn't make dinner. What a selection of "proper" beers...magic place. Don't miss it.

Our beer connoisseur daughter highly recommended Wildeman, and this time she was right. It is in the heart of the old city and has a wide selection of beers on tap, and an even broader selection of bottles. It is a great place to stop for refreshment, especially mid-day when the real beer drinks are elsewhere!

Feels like cozy Amsterdam, not like Amsterdam tourism. The selection is amazing, and the staff was very friendly giving us advice to help us making choices about beers that we were unfamiliar with. The menu can be difficult to navigate, so a good and helpful staff was essential. We were here a few times because it was so close to... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
