De Pijp



Located south of Amsterdam's canal belt, De Pijp is named for its straight and narrow streets that resemble old pipes. In the 19th Century this neighborhood was nothing but a slum, yet today is becoming one of the cities hippest neighborhoods frequented by yuppies. The neighborhood is a favorite of the Dutch, but also has a fair share of interesting tourist attractions including the city's biggest market, the Albert Cuypmarkt, as well as the Heineken Brewery.

No longer brewing the world famous beer and known as the Heineken Experience, the brewery has an illustrated history of the beer, along with an interesting display of its advertising over the years. The brewery also has a few bars throughout, and your admission gets you a glass of beer at each, so most visitors leave happy.

Behind the brewery is the Marie Heinekenplein, Amsterdam's answer to a Latin Quarter. The square is full of international bars, including Barca, where you can have a few drinks while you take a Salsa lesson.
