Loved it here. Lots of fantastic cheeses to try and trust me you will buy after tasting. Lovely staff speak excellent English. Nothing is too much trouble. Despite the crowds you feel special.

Even if you are not a cheese lover, you will still fall in love with this cheese factory. The staff there made me taste every class of cheese they had. the cheese making demo are really worth to watch, the presenter was so humourous and had an incredible send of humour. Very warm staff..

If you love cheese you'll love this place! Everyone was very knowledgable and helpful. Only issue we had my friend brought a sealed cheese and was told it would be fine to travel with (she wanted to bring it home with us) and a week later she noticed the packaging was broken and he had to throw the whole thing...

Interesting visit and great variety of cheeses, with helpful staff and lots of taste opportunities. Good for a visit, even if you don't buy any cheese.

Great cheese store. They have some of the local favorites and the cheese is excellent. While it is not cheap here, it is fresh and tasty with good variety of cow vs goat, an soft vs. hard. Great place to get Cheese during your stay - you cannot bring this back to the US.

This was part of a trip that me and my partner went on. It was interesting, but I was more interested in tasting them listening to the talk.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
