Tasting centre for some of the finest Dutch cheeses. The historic ripening process of the Reypenaer cheeses is unique in the Netherlands. In the 100-year-old warehouse on the Oude Rijn river in Woerden, the Reypenaer cheeses are matured in an entirely natural way. Over time, this process leads to the distinctive and complex taste with its exceptional aroma that characterises these artisan cheeses.In the Reypenaer Cheese Tasting Rooms in the centre of old Amsterdam, you can personally test and evaluate the flavour, the aroma and the qualities of the Reypenaer cheeses, all under the guidance of an expert cheese taster.Each cheese tasting session lasts approximately one hour, and caters for a maximum of 20 people per tasting. Tasting workshops take place every Monday and Tuesdays from 13.00H till 15.00H Wednesday to Sunday throughout the day from 12.00H to 17.00H. The Connoisseur workshop costs €15.00 Per person.

Who knew eating cheese and drinking wine for two hours could also be educational? I learned so much about the nuances of cheese and the Reypenaer dedication to authenticity. Our host was hilarious and the space was charming.

Definitely one of the best things we did whilst visiting. There is a cheese tasting course which goes for about an hour. Very informative and plenty of delicious cheeses to choose from. These are also paired with wine to make the perfect afternoon. Highly recommended.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

There doesn't seem to be an option for such a discount before you enter your credit card details. So, I would say not.
