“The Heineken Experience is one of Amsterdam’s most authentic and famous attractions. Located in the center, this old factory used to manufacture all of the brand’s beer until 1988, when the main production line was moved to a larger facility outside the city due to overwhelming demand for the product. Nowadays it operates as a museum and tourist attraction which has been visited by millions of people from all over the world since it opened its doors in 2001. The Heineken Experience includes an interactive self-guided walk through the factory, a Heineken tasting session, fun information about the company’s history and the Heineken logo and much more!”
