Tips from the Net @ De Vredespijp

Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience! It is a self-guided tour; you walk around the different areas to learn about the history of Heineken and the brewing process – very interactive and informative. If you have the time I would definitely recommend checking out this fun beer museum! GooglePlace - September 2017

As the name suggests, this is more about the experience. You don't really learn a huge deal that you probably didn't already know. But there are interactive areas and a rooftop bar you can enjoy drinks. That would be a nice place to spend a few hours with friends, and there's a BBQ up there too. Worth a couple of hours out of the trip to come here for sure. GooglePlace - August 2017

It was an overall great experience, like many others have stated it is expensive (approximately 16€). It was a self-guided walking tour with video and guides in different areas providing the history of Heineken and the brewing process. They also give you a taste of wort, which had an interesting taste. During the tour they have a 4D experience, which demonstrates the brewing process and it was surprisingly informative and fun. Before they take you to the rooftop bar, they teach you how to drink a beer (so you really get 2.5 beers). On the rooftop bar you are bar you are served two beers, which had nice views of the city. After the bar you are lead through a series of games and photo opportunities. It was a great experience and I would recommend it. GooglePlace - August 2017

It was a bit pricey but it wasn't so bad. It was okay, it was good but not the best. There wasn't much people because we arrived 2 hrs prior to closing. But when we saw the queue the following day, it was packed up until outside the building. I suggest you get your tickets beforehand and avoid the peak hours. The first few parts were pretty straight-forward. The lady explaining the history of the heineken seemed she didn't like what she was doing. Our kid enjoyed the part where you will be watching a video on how they brew the beer because it was like you were part of the actual process. But for me, it was pretty boring. Something you can skip. Then the rooftop is where you can get your free beers. There was a lounge where you can see old Heineken commercials. You can also order a bottle with your name or anything you want to put as a souvenir but when we got it, it was so small that it wasn't even worth it. Overall, it was good. Good stop to just relax and have a couple of drinks. You're paying to experience Heineken basically. GooglePlace - August 2017

After 4 trips to Amsterdam we finally went to visit the Heineken Experience. The big reason we didn't go earlier was the cost. Even though each admission comes with 2 beer, as a non-beer drinker that wasn't a think for me, and even then, it was a pretty pricey way to spend an hour. I was surprised by the experience - it was actually pretty educational and interesting. Tasting stations for different parts of the process (like the wort) was a neat touch, and the 4D ride was pretty cool. If you have the funds, or love beer, this would be a great activity. If it's your first time in Amsterdam and time is a factor, I wouldn't make this the number one priority. GooglePlace - August 2017
