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.

There are some things in life you have to witness, to see, to be there. The Grand Canyon, the Vatican, the Mona Lisa. Everyone's bucket list should contain a tick-off box for this one as well. One of worlds best orchestras (the Concertgebouw Orchestra) performing in one of the world's best acoustic buildings. Beautiful as well. Wonderful!! Highly, highly recommended.

Anyone who enjoys music performed in a magnificent, acoustical setting should plan a visit here. There is a tour of the building which we were unable to take. We attended a performance in the Recital Hall since that was the setting for the music we wanted to hear. Next time the Main Hall.

We were able to go see a one hour Sunday morning concert for a very reasonable price. The facility is amazing and the acoustics were fantastic (even behind the stage where we sat). My teenage musician children loved it, and loved the free tea beforehand. Highly recommended. One tip now that we've been there: there are coat hooks in the... More

Our friends got 5th row seats for a Bartok symphony,James Macmillian trombone concerto with an amazing soloist Joregn von Rijen and a Dvorak piece. The conductor Ivan Fischer. Standing ovations for ten minutes. Unbelievable. Plan way ahead because tickets fly out the door. We are so thankful that our friends took us.

If you know music, you know how Important the Concertgebouw is. World famous orchestra and jazz orchestra. Free Wednesday lunch concerts with lesser known musicians (not the Concertgebouw Orchestra) during season. I have been here on numerous occasions. Great tour, too!

Saw a talented trio perform Brahms. Crowd seemed older and mostly Dutch. Very high quality music and passionate audience. Go if you like classical music.

Went to see a performance of the Messiah by The Bach Choir and Orchestra of the Netherlands. The venue is spectacular and the acoustics wonderful. The conductor was quite entertaining and led a brilliant group of musicians. Great job by all the soloists (very partial to the bass). At intermission the concert hall provides drinks which were nice. The second... More

It has free concerts often. We went for a lunchtime organ recital. The place was completely full. Very nice facility. Would have loved to have heard a full orchestra there. Next time.

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.
