Heineken Experience

Built upon the foundations of the former Heineken brewery (which used be in this very building until 1988 but was relocated to a more convenient facility in the outskirts of the city), this amazing place, known earlier as the Heineken Treat and Information Centre and since 2001 as the Heineken Experience, provides its visitors with an incredible opportunity to have a peek at the whole production process and history of ‘probably the best beer in the world’ from the inside.

Hortus Botanicus – Amsterdam’s answer to botanical bliss

Experience tranquil surroundings in the heart of the busy city centre. Located in the Plantage district Hortus Botanicus is a great outing for all ages and includes a three-climate greenhouse and a butterfly greenhouse. For a more impressive and picture perfect outing we recommend a summer visit when the garden is in full bloom.

Occupying a prime position upon Amsterdam’s bustling Dam Square, located within an historical building, is the fun filled, interactive waxwork museum – the world famous Madame Tussauds.
