Description:

The Royal Concertgebouw is one of the world's most famous concert halls...

The Royal Concertgebouw is one of the world's most famous concert halls renowned for its exceptional acoustics. With 700 concerts a year the Concertgebouw offers a varied programme featuring leading international musicians, orchestras, and conductors. The hall functions as a home base for the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the very best orchestras in the world. Time and time again, critics have lauded its unique sound, which clearly stands out among thousands of others. Behind-the-scenes tours provide a look into the concert hall's rich history. There are scheduled tours three times a week and for groups available on request.

From September to June at 12:30pm. Every Wednesday, there is a free 30 minute concert in the Concertgebouw. Due to the popularity of these concerts it is recommended to arrive at least 45min before the concert.

My first visit to Concertgebouw fulfilled all my expectations! I had heard so much about this concert hall and it was true, although my seat was not the most expensive I had a very fine experience, Mahlers fifth symphony - one of my favourites! I like these old-style concert halls, visited Konzerthaus Berlin a couple of years ago, but Concertgebouw... More

The hall is beautiful and has a very warm sound. The orchestra is full of virtuosi. Expressive powerful playing. One of the best concerts I have ever attended.

Another free concert on Wednesday each week throughout the month from 12:30 to 1pm and it's great seating but packed since it's free. They play 6 songs and then you are free to enjoy your day. Good chance to experience the music and place for free to see if you like it before spending money on a show there.

Spent €80 on two tickets to see the worst choir and orchestra I have ever seen. No indication on the website that they were an amateur orchestra just assumed that for the hall and the price that it would be a good concert. I am a sound engineer and my partner is a professional classical musician. I hate snobbery in... More

Last minute decision to try and get seats for 2 performance one on the Saturday night and the other the Sunday afternoon. The lady in the booking office gave good advice about seats and the pros and cons of pillars and angled views. Included in the ticket price is a drink before and during the interval.Amazing! The Bruchner Symphony was... More

This splendid venue was full to capacity and the magnificent spectacle, very well organised. Free drinks were offered before the concert and during the intermission. A place not to be missed!

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
