Or even someone who just wants to have fun! The Heineken Experience is a trip to the Heineken Brewery and Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is not a working brewery but an old one which has been converted into a museum and is open for everyone. The whole experience is just full of wonder and fun and excitement. You need to go there just to feel like a kid who is given the pass to sit on those 4ft and above rides in an amusement park.
Don’t get fooled by the name – nope, its not open all night! Probably the most touristy coffee-ship in Amsterdam, this one attracts crowds as its located right in the city centre. Overlooking the canal, one can grab a seat here and get comfortable. There are tons of bakeries around if one doesn’t watch to smoke for too long.Address: LeidsepleinWhat to order: White WidowCost: €11
Located in the area opposite the street from Madam Tussauds, this coffee-shop is a nice place to go if you want the hustle bustle of the city. It is situated in a tiny alley off the main street with lots of little shopping stores around. The large window overlooking the street allows its inhabitants to people-watch as they walk by. It isn’t very big but definitely attracts a large crowd looking for a good hot chocolate!Address: Zoutsteeg 14, 1012What to order: Super Silver Haze Ice WeedCost: €30
Amsterdam’s floating flower market is a fine source for high-quality flora. Pick up a bag of tulip bulbs for the folks back home and they’ll thank you when they receive the gift, then think of you again in spring when the blooms come up. The thoughtful souvenir will cost you a few euros, but it’s free to smell the roses and photograph the stunning blooms at this fragrant open flower market lining Singel Canal between Muntplein and Koningsplein.
