Het Amsterdamse Proeflokaal
This 1,800 m2 “tasting room” was born from a partnership between local businesses, educational institutions and the municipality of Amsterdam, with the aim of making visitors feel more welcome in the city. It’s meant to be a meeting point, where locals, foodies and tourists can experience all the flavours and foods Amsterdam has to offer. Spread across two floors, there’s much to discover, from traditional Dutch dishes to international delicacies that found their way to Amsterdam over the centuries. Start your day with coffee at the breakfast bar, before heading over to the testing tables, take a seat at the seafood bar or settle on one of the terraces on the recently renovated Stadionplein, weather permitting. Interested in local history? Then head to the second floor, where you can explore Amsterdam’s culinary history by watching a Food Experience film that is sure to stimulate all your senses. Beer lovers should certainly check
out the World of Beer, while wine aficionados will love the World of Wines, where they will be presented with perfectly paired wines and appetisers. At Het Amsterdamse Proeflokaal it’s all about seeing, tasting and experiencing, which is why regular workshops and lectures are organised here, and you are welcome to take part anytime.
