This place is a heaven for beer lovers. The Heineken Experience takes you through four levels of one of the most recognized export products of The Netherlands. The building is one of the original Heineken breweries, though the main brewing facility moved outside the city in 1975. Heineken has been brewing beer since 1873, and still uses the original strain of yeast it started its very first batch with, and during the 90-minute tour, you’ll learn all about the brewing process and the history of this iconic brand. At the end of the tour, each visitor over 16 years old is treated to two free drinks. Yes—the legal drinking age in the Netherlands is 16. Oddly enough, while 16 year olds can drink, those under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
