The very first Heineken Brewery in the world. Currently there is no production here but used for guided tours. There are interactive shows and gaming stations for the visitors. The large boilers that are pretty old look quite fascinating. The tour walked us through the history of Heineken, notable personalities, the process of making the beer, how the packaging is done etc .. 

The entrance costs 21 Euro per person, comes with two small beers. Children are not allowed, and the tour is available only in English. As there are only limited slots available per day, best to book it online.
