Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Save time and money with an Amsterdam combo ticket to two of its best attractions
  • Play on the interactive exhibits, learn the history of Heineken and enjoy a couple of cold brews at the Heineken Experience
  • Cruise on Amsterdam's UNESCO Heritage-listed canals and see 16th and 17th-century architecture, plus get a free audio guide

Can't decide between the Heineken Experience or a canal cruise? We've taken the dilemma off your hands with this fun Amsterdam combo. Learn the history and recipe behind the iconic beer brand in the interactive brewery (free drinks included at the end), then hop on a canal boat for some even cooler Dutch history.

The best day of your Amsterdam trip may just be the one that involves a cruise on its UNESCO World Heritage-protected canals and a deep-dive into the world of Heineken, the city's most famous export.

Your 1-hour Lovers cruise leaves from right by Centraal Station. Seeing the city from the water is probably the best vantage point - plus you definitely won't get hit by a cyclist while in the boat! Plug into your audio guide and learn the history of the 16th and 17th-century monuments as you float on by.

In the Heineken Experience you'll be led through the brewing process and history of Heineken, before winding up in the disco-style bar for a few free beers.

It's an all-in-one Amsterdam spectacular. Cheers!

The cruise was a great way to see the city - especially as it was wet. Which led nicely then into a couple of hours at the Heineken experience. A very different way to spend a couple of hours, but with a few frees beers thrown in was well worth it.

The check point of Canal trips is not nearby of Heinecken Experience.
You most walk about 15 minutes to the Lovers Tickets check point.
