your experience

Take an interactive, self-guided tour of the former Heineken Brewery, which has now been transformed into a world-class museum. Learn all about the Heineken family that created the famous brand, see how the brand's logo has been developed over the years, and follow the brewing process. Beer experts will lead you through every step - from collecting water to bottling the beer. To enhance your visit with more audio content, you can download and use the Heineken Experience App. At the end of your 1.5-hour tour, you can raise a couple of glasses (of beer/soft drink) with your friends as well as the crew and gulp them down!

Make the most of your trip to Amsterdam with this laid-back 1-hour cruise of the city’s canals. Created in the 17th-century to keep the sea at bay, this UNESCO World Heritage Site gives you the best views of the entire city. Float past charming merchant houses and cobblestone streets that have decorated the banks for many decades. See landmark attractions such as the Magere Brug (‘Skinny Bridge’) on the Amstel river and the charming neighborhood of Negen Straatjes. The tour comes with a fun complimentary audio narrative in 19 different languages, so you can soak in some history along with the views!

Please note: The Heineken Experience is still closed due to COVID-19. However, you are now able to visit it on April 17th, 2021, as part of the Dutch government's COVID-proof reopening pilot. You can book your ticket here. Please note that you'll be asked to take a COVID-19 rapid test 40 hours before your visit. Get more info here.
