Heineken brewery and Amsterdam canal cruise Excursions in Amsterdam and vicinity
Heineken brewery and Amsterdam canal cruise: Step inside the former Heineken brewery for four floors of beer and cruise the canals of Amsterdam with this bargain combo tour. The Heineken brewery will plunge you chin deep into the fascinating world of this world-renowned beer. Discover all that Amsterdam has to offer with a relaxing trip on the River Amstel, with an audio guide available in 17 languages filling you in on all the sights.
At the Heineken experience, discover a world of brewing lore and the history of the world’s most famous beer. Sniff it, sip it, and admire it bubbling away in the interactive displays in this beautifully preserved building. Practise your pint-pulling skills and earn yourself a certificate, or bottle and label your own beer as a special souvenir or present. There’s even a stable where you can meet the mighty Heineken dray horses, who still help deliver some of the beer today.
The canal tour offers an authentic angle on the city built on water. Discover Amsterdam’s glorious golden age of naval exploits and merchant seamen with your personal audio guide. Float past the Westerkerk, where Rembrandt, master of Dutch painting, is buried. Drift by the building that sheltered heroic Ann Frank and her family during World War Two. Spot the narrowest house in Amsterdam, barely wider than its front door. From bridges to beer, from canals to coffee shops, with this two-in-one tour you’ll discover the true spirit of this watery world city.
