Heineken Experience – The Beer Entertainment Park

The Heineken brewery is not only the most steeped in tradition in Amsterdam, but also one of the largest beer producers globally. In the old brewery building, at the edge of the lively quarter De Pijp, you can experience the rich and successful history of the brewery with all your senses.

The old brewery is located in Amsterdam South and was reconstructed as an experience museum a few years ago. There is one thing you should not expect here: a brewery tour leading through a dusty museum. The Heineken Experience is an entertaining adventure with many interesting attractions.

The brewery claims to brew the best beer in the world. This is, of course, a matter of taste, and most Bavarians would fiercely disagree. In any case, it is the most international beer – you can get a bottle of Heineken even in the most remote corners of the world.

Heineken ist the third largest brewery in the world

The traditional brewery has long developed into a gigantic industrial group. Besides the classic Heineken Pils, the company brews and sells around 250 different beers in 70 countries.
