Amsterdam Heineken Experience Area
Planning a city trip to Amsterdam? The capital of the Netherlands is a popular destination for travelers from all over the world. Some come looking for the famous coffee shops, Dutch or Belgian beers and the city’s Red Light District, others are interested in the renowned museums or the historical city center with its canals and many beautiful buildings from the past centuries.
Want to learn more about the famous Dutch beer Heineken? Then you can’t miss out on a visit to the “Heineken Experience”, in the center of Amsterdam. Some expect to find a beer museum, which it’s not – it’s an interactive multimedia experience that teaches you about the history of Heineken and how the world famous pilsner is brewed. Of course you get to have a taste as well (if you’re of legal drinking age)! The building in de Pijp district of Amsterdam, that was established as a brewery in 1864, is not in use anymore – it was closed in 1988, but it still has all the old machinery that you can check out. It opens every day at 11 am in the morning, till 6:30 (Mon – Thu) or 7:30 pm (Fri – Sun).
