Amsterdam city tour and Heineken brewery: Raise a glass to historic Amsterdam at the Heineken brewery, and then discover the city from the top deck with a bus tour of all the major sites. The Heineken brewery will plunge you chin deep into the fascinating world of this internationally-renowned beer. Discover all that Amsterdam has to offer with a relaxing bus tour of the city, with an audio guide available in 16 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, and enjoy two free beers. 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. And if the visit to the museum whetted your appetite for more beer, check out the cafés near Marie Heinekenplein afterwards!
