"Amsterdam." Europe Things to Do Tip by richiecdisc

Europe Things to Do: 1,313 reviews and 2,177 photos


A fun filled city that I hit on my first two trips to Europe and again just recently, it is full of charming canal filled streets that ring the city center, world-class museums, and cafes of every shape and size.

My first pass through with my buddy from college is a foggy memory now, but as great as my first view of a Van Gogh was, it was the Heineken Brewery tour that really made the impression on me. Led through all fazes of the brewing process and even bottling at that time, we found ourselves in a room full of mostly backpackers from around the world, copiously drinking the free beer that Heineken so wisely provided. At the conclusion, our host told us it was his great pleasure to have us, and to come back again, just ?not tomorrow!? This got the biggest laugh of the day and I found myself there again with Kristin ten years later. I believe it was just as much fun. Well, at least I can remember it.
